Hondoji Temple

In the next town over, there is a very nice temple which doesn't appear in any of the tourist guide books or anything, but which is actually a really nice place to visit, especially in the summer when it is full of blooming flowers. Now, it doesn't have any flowers but it is extremely tranquil and has the additional honour of being the burial site of Nichiren, one of the major names in Japanese Buddhism and the founder of the Nichiren sect. Here are some pictures:
