It’s pleasant to walk in such a nice view and weather. These sign post help me a lot indeed. I don’t have to check map so often while enjoying walking.
The Horin-ji is dedicated to Nehan-shaka-nyorai (涅槃釈迦如来), which has lying posture. I think it’s pretty rare. It seems that it is open to public only once in 5 years.
The Horin-ji is rather small, if I compare with the temples I have visited already. After getting the temple stamp, I planned to have something for lunch at the small cafe in front of the temple. But I skipped because I felt it’s not quite the right one… I was wrong, there’re almost no place where I can eat 🙂
