We went to visit the Tokodaiji
Temple in Tokyo. The black and white photo is from a brochure.
The calligraphy to the right is something that the monks at the
various shrines and temples in Japan will do for you. I kept
a special book for the purpose but if you don't have one, they'll
use their own rice paper. There's a very small donation to the
shrine for this...a few hundred yen, if I recall.
To the left some of my friends
ham it up in front of the Temple. Jan in front, then Joe and
Richard. Above is a photo of the altar area inside of the temple.
Doing our sight-seeing and buying
"stuff". To the left is a pretty little shinto shrine
we passed.To the right the gang with me in pink.
