Higashi Honganji, Kyoto

This trip wasn't a part of my plan, but I want to go back to Okayama tomorrow.  So, today, I spent some time at Higashi and Nishi Honganji.  These photos are all from Higashi Honganji.  Although the temple was reconstructed during the Meiji era, it was originally created by the daughter of Shinran.   She had to be a powerful woman.   I hope all readers have a chance to read Shinran's Tannisho including my children.

In front of the temple.

Dragon water fall.

927 tatami mats!

Two large buildings were under repair.  The sign said it would take until 2015.
 I also went to see Nishi Hongangi because it's very close to this temple.
