File:Japanese buddhist monk by Arashiyama cut.jpg


English: Yuzen, a buddhist monk from the Sōtō Zen sect begging at Oigawa, Kyoto. Begging is part of the training of some Buddhist sects.
Français : Yuzen, un moine bouddhiste de l'école Zen Sōtō, mendie à Kyōto. La mendicité est un devoir qui fait partie de la formation des moines dans certaines écoles ou sectes.

Rinzai (臨済宗)? No. Same as Japanese buddhist monk by Arashiyama.JPG but I cropped it and changed the colour balance.
