  • I visited in the Terakoya and shijuku sacred space of 10 Fortune pilgrimage. Because in the main hall was published in special clean, but did visit in "gejin". As usual, both towers and statues of firsts this temple was. Looks pretty views from the vicinity of the stone under closer look than this tower, in particular, the smallest in Japan as a national treasure pagoda (excluding those in the room). This is like a work of art.

  • Five-story pagoda was famous because we wanted to. Tight in the inner sanctuary to fine stairs. Quite a walk. Nokyo-Sho is glad you have.

  • Spectacular colours here in Autumn. This buddhist temple setting is serene in a forest environment. Just a lovely spot. Including a helmet headed buddhist monk busking with a bamboo flute. 16th century style. The helmet was worn to manifest the absence of ego.
  • We visit the 1/2018. I think 0/1974 was visited for the first time. Even better when Kondo and pagoda is seen. Whether it has snowed this morning was white roof of the main hall. Unfortunately not visit Buddhist statues were repair order, Maitreya Temple. Other Deva previously was under construction. Until the inner sanctuary there stairs are about 700. Elementary school kids were counting down to the bottom. 座ri込mimashita in the Chair was indeed finished climbing. The nokyo-sho in Deva and the main hall, 奥no院.
