Tomomitsu Gashin: The Japanese Techno Buddhist Monk

NOCTIVE

Today in Japan, the number of art festivals held at or by Buddhist temples is on the rise. One of the pioneer festivals is “Kohgen”, which has been held at a temple in Tokyo annually since 2011. We interviewed Gashin Tomomitsu, the deputy head priest of Jokoji (the temple where the event is held) who runs the festival.
