Autumn Nara, day 2

For this blogpost we are returning to the Nara visit.

So on the second day in Nara we went to Todai-ji from the very morning hoping the sneak in before tourist groups appear.

Day 3, Kamakura: Hasedera, Daibutsu, part 2

After we were sitting in the restaurant the weather worsened. The light rain that started about the time we entered the restaurant became stronger.

Kyozo Sutra Archive
These are rotating bookracks called rinzo. Important Buddhist sutras are kept there. By rotating the rinzo it is said you get the same merit as reading all the sutras.
