History
COSTUMES WERE WORN BY THE YOUNGEST MEMBERS OF THE BUDDHIST TEMPLE LOCATED IN RAYMOND, ALBERTA. FOR AT LEAST FIFTY YEARS, CHILDREN DRESSED UP IN THE ELABORATE GARMENTS AS PART OF RELIGION’S ‘CHIGO’ OR YOUNG-CHILDREN CEREMONY. THE PROCESSIONAL EVENT REQUIRED THAT THE CHILDREN DRESS AS HEAVENLY BEINGS. BOYS WORE A STIFF HAT OF LACQUERED GAUZE CALLED AN ‘EBOSHI’ WHILE GIRLS WORE THE CROWN OF THE PHOENIX BIRD KNOWN AS A ‘TENKAN’. THE CEREMONY WAS CONDUCTED AT THE RAYMOND BUDDHIST TEMPLE EVERY FIVE YEARS, COMMENCING ON THE DATE OF THE TEMPLE’S DEDICATION (1929) AND ENDING ON ITS FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY IN 1979. IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE PAPER LOTUS FLOWERS WERE MADE LOCALLY AND THE GARMENTS WERE IMPORTED FROM JAPAN. FOR ALMOST EIGHTY YEARS, THE TEMPLE SERVED THE SPIRITUAL NEEDS OF MANY AMONG SOUTHERN ALBERTA’S JAPANESE COMMUNITY. IT ACTED AS A CENTRE FOR TRADITIONAL BUDDHIST TEACHING AND JAPANESE CULTURE UNTIL ITS CLOSING IN 2006. THESE COSTUMES, IN ADDITION TO OTHER SPIRITUAL OBJECTS INCLUDING THE TEMPLE’S SHRINE, WERE DONATED TO THE GALT AS PART OF THE TEMPLE’S CLOSING AND EVENTUAL SALE. CEREMONY WHERE THIS COSTUME WAS LAST WORN WAS PERFORMED FOR THE BUDDHIST TEMPLE'S FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY IN 1979. PERFORMED FOR THE TEMPLE'S INAUGURATION, 10TH, 20TH, 25, 30, 35, 40...ETC EVERY 5TH YEAR. DONOR HAS PHOTOS OF COSTUMES BEING WORN DURING THE ANNIVERSARIES (SEE PERMANENT FILE). DONOR PRESUMES THAT THE MATERIAL DATES TO 1929 TO 1930. SEE P20070014000 FOR INFORMATION ON GIRLS CHIGO COSTUME AND P20030041001 FOR COMPLETE HISTORY ON BUDDHIST TEMPLE. ON APRIL 26, 2009 THE BUDDHIST TEMPLE OF SOUTHERN ALBERTA, LOCATED IN LETHBRIDGE, WAS THE SITE OF AN O-CHIGO CHILDREN’S PARADE, HELD AS PART OF THE TEMPLE’S DEDICATION CEREMONY. VISUAL DOCUMENTATION OF O-CHIGO COSTUMES, REPRESENTING THE ONE DONATED, CAN BE FOUND IN THE GALT’S ARCHIVES, RELATED TO THE 2009 DEDICATION EVENT. ADDITIONALLY, O-CHIGO RELATED PHOTOS CAN BE FOUND RELATED TO THE HISTORY OF THE TABER BUDDHIST CHURCH IN THE GALT’S ARCHIVES. FINALLY, IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE ROYAL ALBERTA MUSEUM IS IN POSSESSION OF HISTORIC 40S ERA FOOTAGE OF TEMPLE EVENTS, RELATED TO THE RAM’S COLLECTION OF A SHRINE FROM PICTURE BUTTE.

FROM AUGUST 29 TO 31, 2011 COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED THE DONOR, JOY KOGAWA, ABOUT HER MEMORIES ASSOCIATED WITH SPECIFIC OBJECTS THAT SHE DONATED IN 1997. OF THIS ARTIFACT, KOGAWA SAID: “[MY FATHER] WORE THIS PRACTICALLY EVERY SUNDAY AROUND HIS [PRIEST’S] GARMENTS… THEY WERE KEPT IN THE CLOSET WITH ALL HIS OTHER VESTMENTS AND THINGS. AND HE PUT THEM ON AND THEN WOULD GO IN THE CHURCH… THIS IS VERY WORN OUT. AND I THINK THEY WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN HOW TO KEEP IT CLEAN, BECAUSE THEY USED TO USE KEROSENE OR SOMETHING TO WIPE OUT THE DIRT… ALL THESE THINGS THAT [MY PARENTS] HAD KEPT ALL THEIR LIVES WERE STILL BEING KEPT, AND THIS AMONGST THEM, WHICH IS A VERY WORN THING, AND VALUED. THERE IT WAS, HAVING BEEN USED EVERY SUNDAY FOR ALL HIS LIFE, AND STILL THERE… I EVEN KEPT HIS VESTMENTS THAT WERE ALL WORN AND RAGGED… THEY WERE THERE IN HIS CLOSET, AND BECAUSE I DIDN’T WANT TO OFFEND HIM BY THROWING ANYTHING OUT, I REMEMBER TAKING THIS ALL TO THE CLEANERS [IN VANCOUVER]. ALL OF IT, EVEN THE RAGS. AND THIS CLEANER WHO WAS TAKING THIS STUFF IN LOOKING ASKANCE AND BEMUSED… HE TOOK ALL THESE RAGS IN AND CLEANED THEM AND GAVE THEM BACK TO ME… AND THE MARKS OF THE BODY THAT ARE ON THERE THAT ARE BLACK, AND COULD NOT BE REMOVED, I THINK THAT SPEAKS TO OUR REALITY. WE CANNOT REMOVE THE STAINS THAT HAVE COME FROM THE SWEAT OF OUR LIVES AND ARE MARKED IN OUR CLOTHING, ARE MARKED IN OUR SOULS, AND THEY’RE PART OF WHO WE ARE SO WHY DENY IT? WHY NOT JUST HAVE IT AS IT IS AND EMBRACE IT?” THE FOLLOWING MEMORIES WERE PROVIDED BY REVEREND TIM NAKAYAMA IN A LETTER TO THE GALT ON 16 AUGUST, 2007. HE WROTE: "THE STOLES, AND CUFFLINKS ARE PARTS, ACCESSORIES, AND PARTS OF VESTMENTS AND GARMENTS WORN BY ANGLICAN CLERGY. [THESE] ITEMS WERE UNDOUBTEDLY USED BY MY FATHER.
