Very nice and peaceful temple complex

Akishinodera temple is off the beaten track and a very nice and peaceful temple complex. There were not a lot of tourists when we were there. Serene!

A walk through of this temple is a delightful experience. The ground in the wooded area of the temple is coverd throughly by moss. There is also an interesting statue in the main hall.
