    As the legend goes, a wealth merchant who lived a long time felt inclined to collect mini Buddha statues when he traveled around Japan, the result is the very interesting area which most people (Japanese or foreign) have ever heard about or visited.

    The area is hidden deep in the mountains, where regular buses don’t go. The only out there is to hire a car, taxi or bike.

    I will have to try to find out exactly where these photos were taken, but it's somewhere in the countryside of Toyama prefecture. It looks like something out of Switzerland!
