#851 “jikoin” ~ after shojin-ryori ~
After lunch we walked around the temple and admired the beautiful garden.
↑Japanese name is “Nozenkazura”(Campuses grandiflora), red ivy flowers.
↑There is a Buddha statue inside. There is also a dragon painted on the ceiling.
↑Looking out from the window when walking at a covered passage. It’s such a cool image. The scenery changes along with the season and weather. It has a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere.
Then we had green tea and a Japanese sweet.
↑These tea set was included in the entrance fee, 1000 yen.
↑In front of us there were well-maintained trees. We felt relaxed and were just looking at the garden calmly.
This temple is very clean and beautiful.
The chief priest was kind and nice. Maybe that’s why my mom and her friend bought a lot of temple’s original incense sticks, sweets and kaishi (Japanese paper).
↑Even I bought some noodles myself.
It was a very pleasant afternoon.
We were really satisfied with their kindness.
I found shojin-ryori was very good for my body. I usually get a heavy feeling in the stomach after meals. I didn’t feel it at all after this meal. I felt positive and full of energy. It was an amazing experience.
↑Idaten statue. When I passed by the statue I smelled a wonderful fragrance of an incense.
