In the temple to the inner sanctum which houses the Medicine Master, only open to the public once every 50 years. I went for the second time on the last day.  The queues were disappointingly anything but serene.  But still a beautiful morning.

Dream Location

This view made me think how nice it would be to wake up to greenery like this, and take a cup of tea and sit on the deck...

Yamadera - Mountain Temple

This is the main Temple at the bottom of the climb up the mountain.  Inside the Medicine Master was opened, a once in 50 years event.  The ribbons are tied to the medicine finger, to touch them is to come into direct contact with the deity.
