Kiyomizu-dera Temple will illuminate its main hall in pink and conduct a special sermon for people who passed away from breast cancer from 7:00 pm on October 1st and visitors can enter the temple for free and pray. For the entire month of October, Kiyomizu-dera will light-up its two main gates, Niomon and Seimon, in pink to support breast cancer awareness through the Pink Ribbon Campaign.
The pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness. Pink ribbons, and the color pink in general, identify the wearer or promoter with the breast cancer brand and express moral support for women with breast cancer. Pink ribbons are most commonly seen during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
