OK! So it’s hot an oppressive in the city. 29 degrees, the humidity is about 75% and rising because we have had a weather warning for severe thunderstorms tonight. This morning I went to Mitaki Temple, but it’s not just a Temple. There are sprawling landscaped gardens and buildings nestled in woodland up the hillside. It’s a bit of a climb to the top but well worth it as it’s a photographers paradise. Little waterfalls, ponds, dappled light through the forest. You get the picture. Well you don’t as I’m going to show you this building instead.
It’s the Tahoto two storey pagoda dating back to the Muromachi period (1392-1573). The pagoda was relocated from Wakayama Prefecture in 1951 to console the souls of the A Bomb victims.
