Japan Trip 2014 - Temple Tramping

One of my favourite places to visit while I'm in Japan are the temples, both big and small.  I love their serenity, their sense of history and their beauty.

Kaminarimon, Sensoji, Asakusa

Incense, Sensoji, Asakusa.  The worshippers direct the smoke onto the parts of their body they want to heal or strengthen.

Ema Tablets, Fushimi Inari Taisha, Kyoto.

I too have been to the temple in Asakusa. Your photos remind me of how beautiful Japan is.
