I Say A Little Prayer
Yeah, I know autumn is long gone and winter is
coming already here (sorry couldn’t resist the Game of Thrones reference) but anyway, just wanted to share one last set of autumn photos from my revisit of Kamakura at Hasedera Temple. This was the temple I missed out on during my last trip here but I have to admit visiting during autumn is much more rewarding.
The entrance gate (sanmon) may not be as majestic as that of other temples around Kamakura but it is definitely the most beautiful. The giant lantern (lit up at dusk) and that bonsai-like tree really complements the scene.
I came across these cute statues while making my way to the temple hall. They’re quite small and can be easy to miss.
Entry into the temple will set you back 300 yen. And do grab a copy of the English brochure. One of the best brochure of a temple I’ve seen in Japan so far – informative and I really liked the design.
So this concludes my series of autumn photos in Japan. To be perfectly honest, I was getting a bit “autumn-ed” out by that point, it was my 4th weekend in a row shooting autumn scenes. And I guess the timing was about right coinciding with the transition into winter.
