  • I went to the Peony season. Environment has a unique atmosphere, exudes a deep history. There was plenty of shakuyaku-kanzo-what is at the back of the temple all views were tinged with pink. Casting Buddha statues Japan's oldest (was I, sorry if I am wrong are written in the present) is so felt that has been very important. It was during our spectacular environment.

  • Oka-dera was my pinnacle of temple exploration in Japan. The mountain temple was laced in bright color and had a reverent heartbeat. Snow capped the tombstones and statues within. In the middle of my visit, a crowd of devout Asukamura people climbed to the main hall and chanted. It, along with the deep bells, moved my heart. The temple itself is masterfully crafted -- it took 30 years to complete. If you visit, be sure to travel deep into the mountainside to see the smallest secrets.
  • Nyoirin Kannon statue is the largest statues. Grounds and planted a lot of flowers, very clean. Temple in Asuka 突keru Bell-part 2.
