Zojo-ji, Pure Land Buddhist Temple Grounds

Zojo-ji 1

I have a rather interesting story to tell about my first time seeing Zojo-ji, or Zojoji. Which was the night before I took these photos.

But unlike the night before, my walk to Zojoji was from the side where there are many buildings that are not necessarily part of where the tourists go.

Still they were beautiful and a bit thought provoking like this smaller gate or mon, which appears older than other buildings there. I don't know if like the larger gates it dates back to when they began building Zojoji starting in 1598.

This is the first of a few posts from my visit to Tokyo in December, 2010.
