Kanji Kanban Japanese Sign #192-Buddhist Prayer Beads



Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photo if you need help reading the details of this sign. Hanging in the foreground is a giant version of a set of juzu prayer beads.

A 仏壇(ぶつだん) is a Buddhist altar found in homes, and this shop specializes in these along with other Buddhist items.  The character 仏 is often associated with Buddha and Buddhism.

The numbers below refer to the kanji I’ve transcribed below the photo, and correspond to their order of appearance in both Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji and Kanji in Context.
