Walking along the Henro route, I noticed that I’m already in the precincts in the temple 😉 So I once moved out, then once again move in from the main gate. The main gate is rather small comparing others I visited already today.
At every temple, I noticed this cute young priest is standing either at the main temple or Daishi-do, holding the board with the name of the temple. So from now on, I decided to take selfie together with him.
Now it’s 17:00, and I could just be in time for the Nokyo (getting temple stamp). I walked around 11Km and finished today’s schedule as planned.
At Jizo-ji, there’s “Rakan-do (羅漢堂)” in which more than 200 statues of Rakan are displayed like this picture. All of them have different face expression, and it was actually impressive.
