So this is a local temple - the name being that of the title.
I took an awful lot of pictures but only a few came out worth the time to view. Obviously I took them in colour, but for some reason I can't stop making them black and white. I think they look infinitely better.
This first one is absolutely my favourite. It's one of my favourite pictures full stop; although the few people that have seen it are only lukewarm towards it.
Both of these pictures are of the same statue, the drinking/cleansing fountain at the entrance to all Japanese temples tend to have an interesting ornament, often somehow including the water itself (a fountain head, for example).
I've been to this place a couple of times and there are always fresh flowers at the entrance. The one downside of black and white is that you can't see colour; amazingly enough. Not so great with flowers.
As a side-note, it snowed the other day so I made a little video.
