Twenty minutes later the crowd in Tofukuji were getting bigger and bigger that the girls and I decided to proceed to our next destination, Imakumano Kannoji (今熊野観音寺) . After a few minutes of discussion with the rest of the group who were still inside the temple we started to next one.
From Tofukuji it’s about 15 minutes walk but the 3 of us where taking our time and of course took a wrong turn several times but with the help from some of the locals we got there safely. Even before we got inside, the maples along the way where beautiful and the best of all, no crowd. The rest of the group caught up with us while we were taking some pictures and it was nice seeing some familiar faces.
The temple of “memory”? The word “boke” means forgetting. So I think before becoming forgetful, you should visit this temple to prevent it from happening. I am already forgetful so I guess it’s too late.
There were several chairs in front of the main temple and they were also selling some warm amazaki, tea and some sweets. We decided to take a break , enjoy the colors and peacefulness of the temple while having some hot beverage.
Till the next location. 🙂
