Day 1: No.4 Dainichi-ji (大日寺)

The main gate of No.4 Dainichi-ji

After leaving Aizen-in, it started to rain a lot… So I had to use foldable umbrella… but then my both hands are occupied (the other one hold Kongo-zue). I now realized that Sugegasa (Sedge hat) seems to be a good choice. This main gate is interesting, because it has the bell inside. Usually there’s separated bell-tower (鐘楼).

The main temple of No.4 Dainichi-ji

There’re a few pilgrims at this temple, so I can do the usual routine at my own pace. But where are they now ?
