Kuonji temple and autumn pleasure

This hall was dedicated to the founder of the Buddhist Nichiren school.  Nichiren, a man of the 13th century was a charismatic leader with a ‘never say die’ spirit.  He survived the penalty to be sent to a remote island three times.  The walls of the hall is decorated with charming figures like below.

Japan’s second tallest five-storied pagoda is here.  (The highest one is at famous Toji temple in Kyoto)

Japanese like going to see the beautiful red of autumn leaves as much as cherry blossoms.
