Sakura falling :(

in front of the Phoenix Hall

beautiful Uji


prayers written on tablets according to your astrological sign

Our field trip on Thursday was to Uji. There we saw the Ujigami Shrine and Byodo-in, home to the famous Phoenix Hall. The area surrounding the two historic sites was breathtaking...lush forests on rolling hills and a fast-moving river. The Phoenix Hall is a thousand year old shrine with a giant Buddha in it. While the Ujigami Shrine is a Shinto Shrine.
