Buddhist altar fittings
Let's put our hands together.
The development concept of KAKEHASHI SERIES was very simple.
When people think of a Buddhist altar, many will only think about the traditional gold Buddhist altar and assume that their house isn’t big enough, that there’s no proper space for it, or that it won’t match the atmosphere of their living room – even if they'd like to have one. Although there are more and more modern furniture style Buddhist altars, it often still looks off when we see it together with other furniture.
We want to provide a space for many people to put their palms together. Not in the religious sense, but for reasons that are simple and easy. When we come home tired, when our children start school, when we have some worries – we believe that it is very meaningful to have a space in our house where we can reach out to someone special when we want someone to talk to. Beyond rules, or styles, or even religions, we want everyone to have enough space and time in their life to simply clasp their hands together and feel connected. From this hope, our Buddhist altar line KAKEHASHI SERIES was born.
Blend into the interior
Every home has a different interior decoration. For that reason, we wanted to make “a Buddhist altar that blends in with the space you’re living in now.” So, not only did we make the shape simpler, we also offer a variety of backboard colors and other customizations. An altar with a color that matches your furniture or sofa will make your room feel just right.
Feel the connection
We believe we should decorate altars as we please. Even if it is as simple as a [Buddhist] mortuary tablet or a photo [of the person], we can put our palms together and think, “here, I have this space to share with people I love” which is the most important thing. KAKEHASHI SERIES is simple but allows people to have their own form of prayer by providing a space to place keepsakes and memories of the deceased.
A mortuary tablet carved out of solid wood. Each one has a different wood grain to symbolize your loved one. The gold leaf at the joint elegantly tightens up the whole atmosphere of the simple, sophisticated form. Walnut and gold leaf or maple and platinum leaf are available for the wood and joint parts. Your loved one’s honorific name will be written.
A Bon lantern is a light to welcome your departed loved one during Bon season. While more modern designs and small-sized Buddhist altars are available, there hasn’t been a Bon lantern that we can put in a living room as an interior decoration until now. Our new style of Bon lantern fits nicely with modern life.
A simple photo frame that gives an impression of good quality with its soft wood grain texture. You can place it on an altar such as HAJIME or OMOKAGE, and display a portrait of the deceased or a memorable photo of them. Available in white ash or walnut. Best for 3R-sized photos.
