Day 25: No.57 Eifuku-ji (栄福寺)

The entrance of No5.57 Eifuku-ji

Eifuku-ji Temple is located on a slightly higher hill. Since there’re no one in the precincts, I could recite the Sutra in a relaxed mood.

The main temple of No.57 Eifuku-ji

Taishi-ji with amazing dragon carvings

I noticed that my votive card would soon run out, so I bought some when I’ve asked for temple stamp at the Nokyo-jyo. I was moved by the fact that so many of them were gone. The dragon carvings in the Taishi-do are very detailed and quite amazing.
