At the Mountaintop

In my last post, I walked up Mt. Misen on Miyajima island near Hiroshima. So, in this post, I have some pictures I took at the mountaintop.

This disgruntled dude was guarding a temple at the top.

Misen hondo

This is Misen Hondo temple. It gets a lot of visitors considering that you need to climb a mountain to get to it.

sankido

This is Sankido temple. It's only few meters away from Misen hondo. It's just like convenience stores in Japan. In the big cities, you can find 7-elevens right across the street from Lawson station and kitty corner to Family Mart all the time. Somehow temples can also co-exist close by and not steal too many parishioners from each other.
