Jion-Ji Temple

What a gem tucked away in the foothills.  Must get back here with my big camera for a morning.  This took me totally by surprise.

It was founded by a Brahmanic Indian priest in 746.  The current structure is only 400 years old.  Shall be making another visit soon, when the cicada are in full chorus, fully equipped with camera gear and notebooks.
