Guardian Deities

The jizo and the hebi

This (2017) is not the year of the snake, or the horse, but this photo was my random, desktop image of the day. These guardian deities, and I’m guessing there were twelve, each had one of the zodiac animals with them. The blurry one to the far right probably had a sheep.

2017 is the year of the rooster. The next year of the snake will be 2025.

Naesosa is a famous temple in a national park near the west coast of South Korea. It’s a great stop on your way to Gosapo Beach.

Temple Lodging (Shukubo)

Fudoin on Koyasan

I hadn’t done much research on Koyasan before spending the night there. I figured temple lodging would be rather rustic. On the contrary, the experience was lovely and luxurious.
