  • Season with no flowers in a quiet, dignified and heart is a place to settle down. Say well sees light with LED lights in the Amitabha Buddha sitting image according to the description of the priest, the very old, and image, and everyone who has lived nearby for the priest, hakarai. It is a place so famous for hydrangea Temple now want to go during the hydrangea.
