The number of beads is a tool that is strictly defined in the scriptures, from materials to forms and manufacturing methods.
Among the existing bead counts, the ones that are housed in the Shodai-in Temple of Todaiji are the oldest, and their forms have been inherited unchanged since ancient times, and all of them are hand-worked even in the modern days when machines were developed. It is made with.
The number of rosary that has been handed down as a Buddhist teaching tool, but its meaning has spread in the present age and is also used as one of the “talisans” and “women”.
We aimed for a rosary that kept its original meaning and was close to the modern lifestyle.
This time, with the cooperation with Doshisha University, we focused on pets.

Especially developed in the concept that if the cat goes missing during a series of recent disasters, the owner will feel secure if the cat has a protection.
