Hakama untied at Shoganji

The front gate was big gate. Even though the temple was very poor, once that temple was very big temple in that area, so there was a big gate. As soon as I got out of the gate, I untied [laughs] my hakama and tied it as my friends did, without knowing my father was watching me [laughs, laughter]. He was very angry with me for untying the hakama, and tying it in some other way. from Why I came to America. --- Shoganji page - the temple where Suzuki was born.
