Gone, yes 10 years ago, now of the way around the temple was not surrounded by walls, this garden was a shortcut to my elementary school. Daily elementary school on my way to let you pass I did. Bishamon, bishamon, and was called at that time. Street in front of the building of the temple, smooth steps in soil every day coming and I have been through kindergarten and elementary school.

Young twink priest tell staff.

  • Autumn night went for special admission. The tacchu Temple of Rinzai sect Chief Temple East. KaiRo's spectacular fall foliage, but reportedly with constant morning body Buddha bishamonten statues have been exposed after 250 years is a must-see. Sparsely populated with tourists, look carefully around you can.
