  • A typical 'country' field Temple. One thing interesting photos! Typical rural Buddhist Temple. Some good pictures to take!

  • The Temple of the Jodo sect. Temple is a 見処 lot. There is also a head of the nagato Mamoru Kimura shigenari. I think Temple should stop by when we came to Castle Road.
