It is fantastic to enjoy cherry blossoms-viewing with drinking sake or beer, when it is nice outside in Spring ! Also, night viewing of illuminated cherry blossoms were so nice !

I hope you all enjoy the images of the temple and cherry blossoms below.

This Shingon buddhist temple is famous for its fleamarket.

The temple is also famous for its flea market.

what is flea market!?

Consistently, there tends to be an emphasis on sustainable consumption whereby items such as used goods, collectiblesantiques and vintage clothingcan be purchased.

Some of them look autumn leaves.

It’s so beautiful! isn’t it?

5. Dinner after my visitting To-ji temple -Restaurant Kuu, you can try a duck hot pot –

The restaurant is 1minite walking distance from the main entrance of To-ji temple.

Entrance of the restaurant.

Quiet space.

You can try a delicious duck hot pot there!

They also provides many kinds of Sake or Shochu. 

Though the menus were not very cheap,  I think it was worth trying.
