Ji sect is a religious group of Buddhism which belongs to Jodo sect created by Saint Ippen [1239-1289]. However, the sole pray to Amida Buddha of Honen and Shinran is heterogeneous to it. It builds in race faith peculiar to Japan, and wild naturalism is seen. The robe of Ji sect is the conventional Chinese style. Moreover, the aristocratic clerical robe of Japan was thrown away, and a clerical robe was found out in the popular dress. That is, it is "shikisho-no koromo" (ceremonial costume) and "the costume wiout which eliminated idea of mo"" mo", and was called "ami-e" on account of the coarse fiber. It was referred to as "uma-ginu" (=clothes of horse) by the reason for not being what a man wears. On the contrary, the people of Ji sect expressed respect to these clothes, and called it "ami-e" . The priests wore a sumi-black "ami-e" , a sumi-black "Gojo-gesa", a sumi-black "shitagasane",a white underwear, a sumi-black "obi" belt , and a white "kinshu" towel. The priest in the photo has a rosary and a piece of recitation paper written as "Amitabha Decision of Leaving this world and being born again in other worlds for 600,000 people" for distributing to people in his hand. (In Jodokyo, it is explained that aid is given to a paradise by reciting the name of Amitabha.) This "ami-e" is saved at Kankimitsudera temple. The specification of the "ami-e" figure for Saint Uzo, written with "sumi" ink in the third year of Gankim1572], was reffered.

The back, the side, "okumi" (constructing), etc. Were sewn by portion which sewed up cloth, and the thing of the width of the sleeve, the length of the sleeve, and this "sun" was made into 1 ryo in piles. This [1] was made into the top. It piled up in piles as possession of this elegance 2 ryo of [2], and considered as "uchiki". When presuming color of those days, [3] was considered to be fading of red, is ‚ed single and used. All sizes were also depended on traditional articles. Since there is no way with a sleeve and it was put on, it followed the style. Although a overlap is in a cuff, inserted cloth in middle part by the difference of the length from shoulder to a cuff is not visible. Which piled up "hitoe" of 12 sheets when piling up 4 sets of "hitoe" cut [ of the Tsuruoka Hachinmangu shrine / three sheet / 1 set ] things it comes to be alike If 1 set of thing and "hitoe" which unite two single cut [ three sheet / 1 set ] things with 3 sets are piled up, it will become pile [ of 12 sheets ] "hitoe. " Thus, it is thought that the language of bugles is seen actually. Originally bugles do not mean a style of"karaginu"and" mo" which is the array which is fine. Bugles came to show a style of "karaginu" and "mo" style in modern times. Here, since "ko-uchiki" of [4] was added on [1], [2], and [3], it becomes garments and a piece of"hitoe" of 12. And they total 13.
