Buddhism meets beatboxing, hip-hop dancing and laser light shows at a temple in Tokyo, where efforts to get youth and foreign nationals interested in the centuries-old religion have taken on a modern twist. About 30 students from around the world visited Komyoji temple on Thursday in the capital’s Arakawa Ward, where they watched a traditional Buddhist prayer ceremony updated with 21st-century technology and culture, including projection mapping, beatboxing and contemporary dance. The event was part of a program called the International Development Youth Forum, which was established in 2012 to give young people the opportunity to learn about other countries in an increasingly globalized world. 📸: @ryuseitakahashi217
