I’ve never been to the real 平等院 near Kyoto (although I’ve had the postcard photo of the famous temple since 1988) so catching the 50-year old replica in Hawaii a couple days ago was pretty cool.




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.
