  • i don't know why i stayed here few hours, just doing nothing. maybe to relax my heart? i sat on the stairs, just saw people passing by. nice feeling. 
  • The temple in Japan are just amazing, I couldn't get enough of them. Such great architecture and very calming. 
  • Beautiful temple in Tokyo, quiet and authentic. Not so crowded, so we could all quiet. 1 of the nicer temples that we have seen.
