When we were in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, we visited this beautiful and slightly zany temple. It was constructed in 1796.
Let’s go inside, shall we?
At the top…and down…down…down…
This temple was truly fascinating.
Like something out of a book…..
And afterwards, how about some refreshing soba ice cream? Mmm….Delish!
You can see the famous Japanese cartoon character Sazae San visit Sazae-do Temple here.
Sazae is a word for a type of shell. Sazae San and Sazae-do both derive their names this word.
