  • On Sunday evening, I went by bicycle. Before we got the long slope. Bumps and other tourists. Admission of nyoirin Kannon statues is intended. Once inside the temple, and greets and Dane. Was I telling that came with. Things were feeling it was coming and the trouble happened. Is had a prayer temple for an elderly couple came and began chanting a Sutra. Temple also seemed to be like a bother, is no. I can't believe the callousness. Early in I come pick you up. Watch is fleeing from the temple. Okunoin, the Dragon covers pond at around. 12 / 11, remains a little foliage and the nice view. When I passed a tour. Bad timing may become together. More than the beaches.

  • 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.
