Anyways, as usual here's the summary of 2014 Autumn trip so far. Only up to Day Five. And just the morning part of it too!
Day One - Touchdown
Day Four - Morning Run By The Sumida River
Day Four - Mount Takao
Day Four - A Night Stroll and A Date
Day Five - An Important Date!
Continuing from the last trip report, where we met up with a friend, Ru and she took us to a couple of her favourite spots.
First, we visited Herinji Temple in Saitama (click here for the website. It's in Japanese though).
I am not going to write much about the temple but if you want to read more about it, do check out Ru's post Heirin-Ji here and here.
Quite interesting sights too, I might add. Normal, everyday but interesting nonetheless. ^^
A wide pedestrian path too.
Despite being a weekday (we were there on a Friday), the temple had quite a number of visitors. Most were elderlies.
Entry to the temple is 500yen and it's really 500 yen well spent. We didn't spend a lot of time there but maybe another time; when time permits and we visit Heirin-ji again, we'll spent hours and hours there.
It's spectacular during autumn but I'm told it is equally nice during other seasons too. Maybe next time, we'll be there for Spring? ^^
But for the the time being, all I have to share is the photos of Heirin-ji during autumn.
