Thatched Temple

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 to say... authentic.
