Bitchu Kokubunji is another famous location in Okayama, west Japan. The temple, seen in the background, has a 5-storied pagoda, dating from 1844.

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!

Those two guys in the back look like they're about ready to draw swords.

Are we talking about the same two people? The people are too small for me to determine gender.

@Twelvebit: Well, there are 3 people close together, and the one in the front in the white shirt is my dad! The other 2 are my wife and her dad.
