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.

#宮島

When you stay at a nicer inn in Japan dinner is frequently included in the price. At the fancier places the meal is usually a kaiseki (会席料理) affair of mostly seafood. I’m not a big fan of seafood (although I have enjoyed it to some extent in Japan). So when I booked my room at Iwaso I requested a mostly non-seafood dinner, if possible, even though seafood is the norm. To my utter amazement, sukiyaki (my favorite dish anywhere) was part of the meal.
