day 183 - Shojoshin Buddhist temple
Lyn in part of the huge temple complex
Another Shrine Bowl. Sorry.
A monk practises his calligraphy.
Shojoshin is part of the Koyasan Shingon Buddhist retreat which began in 816 CE.
We were fortunate to stay overnight here in this alpine basin about 1,000 m above sea level.
