Blue Hour Ryochoin (亮朝院)

ryochoin nishiwaseda 亮朝院 buddhist temple blue hour edo period

You can see more photos of, and read more about, this Buddhist temple, including an old Edo Period drawing of the place, in this prior entry. This gate is much more elaborate than the original in the Edo drawing. Unlike most Shinto shrines in Japan, you can’t enter these Buddhist grounds once they shut the gates at dusk (or before they open them in the morning).
