Yakuoji is one of the temples on the famous 88-temple pilgrimage around Shikoku.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

A ver striking building, a traditional look but the details look modern. You did a good job with the light under the roof.

I love this! Great lighting on the underside of the roof! Wonderful composition -- your eye naturally travels in a zigzag fashion from the top left corner, to the rightmost edge of the roof, down again towards the red column and then all the way down to the group of people.

@Tanya Hotchkiss: Thank you Tanya! By the way, did you know that your surname is the Japanese word for 'stapler'. Honestly! (Named because of the stapler company)
