The wet climate very often creates wonderful mossy trees – very smooth and velvety

Wooden shingles are used very often for roofs and the usual guardian is present at this temple as well

A nice chap…

This was a smaller temple on a small island off Sendai with loads of small figures distributed everywhere. You can buy them in a small shop downhill and place them there (presumably for good luck, health, …)

After the last rays of late summer sund and lush green we were heading a bit more inlands where the autumn had approached much more

 

Everything was clad in a gorgious cover of colours. And these two Japanese cypresses for sure made an impression

Looking down to temple #5 of the Shikoku temple trail

In the hall was a wonderful wooden carving of a bird and an oven for incense which had lovely contemporary art effects

I just love these patterns

Interestingly you can see three different scenes through the same window

at first we thought it’s the first time we see a female goddess, but then we were doubting… Pure male habitat 😦
