What a fine temple. Jionji. Can't believe this was my first visit to this impressive Buddhist Monastery, and right on my doorstep. It's a very rare place of practice. Most temples nowadays are very much part of the funeral industry, making money by keeping ashes of the deceased and performing funeral rituals. More like a family business handed down from father to son. Nice in it's own way. But this place felt..how to say... authentic.
