day 190 - Hotokuji

This could well be the most fascinating temple in Himeji. The photo shows a defensive drum-tower which may be a hundred years older than Himeji castle itself, and may in fact be the artistic inspiration for Himeji-jo (1608.) I must find out more...

Lyn in front of the drum tower.

More bell / flower-shaped windows...

Spare tiles...   How old ?
