day 293 - Zuiganji on Mt Masui
Yesterday we took the bikes to the foot of Mt Masui, then walked to the temple Zuiganji at the top. We rode through the backstreets pretty much randomly, but in the right direction, and surprised ourselves by actually finding it!
Momiji - Japanese Maple. Autumn is a wonderful time here. The leaves are just beginning to turn, the days are warm and the nights are cool.
Entrance to the Tomb of Tadatsugu Sakakibara (1665).
Zuiganji was established by the Buddhist priest Eben of Koguryo (an ancient kingdom of what is now Korea) in the Nara Period (710-794).
