    SHIiTTENOJI ENTRANCE

    me and .....

    Fondest memory: This is one of the wooden statues found on either side of the main entrance into Shiittenoji Temple. These statues are at the entrances to all temples in Japan. They are guards placed to ward away evil spirits. Pilgrims will often place a pair of straw sandles on the gates for good luck on their travels.

    SHIITENNOJI TEMPLE

    Shiitennoji Pagoda

    Fondest memory: Shiitennoji Temple was one of the first large temples I visited in Japan. It was very crowded when I went in March. I am not sure if this was for a special reason or just because everything in Osaka is crowded!

    This picture is of the main pagoda at the center of the temple grounds.

    Entrance fee into Shiitennoji is 200 Yen for adults. For more information on this place click the link: http://www.www.shiitennoji.or.jp/

    Shrine in Bentencho, Osaka

    Favorite thing: One of the things I'll always like about Osaka is that if you go off the beaten track, you never know what you'll come across. It's a fun city to explore by bicycle or on foot and there is plenty to keep you entertained. In the case a of this picture, an ordinary medium-rise suburban street suddenly gives way to a 400 year-old shrine.
