  • Awarded the individuals we have quite some time and it took time. Because the group is 40 people on a scale he wrote book, white robe and axes were going about 60 and Don... two officials? (Monks? ) In the side goes on and on because it does not correspond to the individual had been addressed, but this degree until.... Then if you say this is one of my personal for (at most 7-8 people so) already in two organizations for you to... flexible, but... recently the temple companies kind of like or say no, again a little General firms with flexible response, at times, be noted in the management and should be. Precincts in Basho's pond and Katsura tree view so no waiting... time was boring. Admission fee is 500 yen (ago was 400 Yen--) would appreciate from everybody is paying so that's why I'm writing up a stamp, so ride on the trend of the times. But simply raising seems on the tide.... Only here's your idol worship KaiRo, and prostate stunning bodhisattva Kannon.

  • Visit the saigoku pilgrimage of 33 temples. Beside the temple, the goddess of mercy of the 33 temples can be viewed. Also of Matsuo Basho "furuike ya...", is born in the pond of the temple here. Station out shuttle 17 days each month, so had watered in, is recommended for this day.

  • I think "Iwama Temple" is located in Shiga Prefecture spot of saigoku 33 pilgrimage, known too much. So say 33 places off the beaten path but know anyone famous Ishiyama temple near the bowler quickly there. I say never heard on sister and her family, mother of considering the block for the family overcame. Is the staff are a little small but ancient history. Candles and incense offerings and feeling quietly hands together a little snow mixed with rain weather could felt pure heart. Sister attracts the nokyo-sho also was grateful.
