A better view of temple music
I found this video through a friend. It is a video introduction of Housenji, a Jodo Shinshu temple in Osaka that also has a gagaku group. At around 3:30 you can see a group of priests playing the instruments, much more clearly than you can in my video!
The YouTube channel where this came from has several similar videos. The title of the series means 'A Walk in Osaka' and features Jodo Shinshu temples in Osaka. These are 'real' videos--that is, with editing and everything!
