Behind The Scenes
Kaipan at Manpuku-ji temple in Kyoto, Japan. -1

Kaipan at Manpuku-ji temple in Kyoto, Japan.

Kaipan is shaped like a fish, which lives always with its eyes open. This is because it is the symbol of hard monastery training with short sleep. Additionally, the sphere-shaped object held in its mouth represents bon-no (all sorts of bad mental states that cloud one's mind). Hitting the back of kaipan means letting bon-no get away from the stomach.
