Chuusonji Temple, Iwate

This temple was the second stop on our adventures in Iwate. This temple became quite popular recently because it became a noted heritage site or something. I didn't really understand, but the temple was pretty none the less. Part of the main attraction of the temple was a giant gold budda, which was behind glass. There was also a movie which played, but that was all in Japanese. After we saw that, I wandered around with Katie from Hiroshima, and we had a nice time catching up after a year of not seeing each other and taking some pretty photos of the coloured leaves. We had a little bit longer at this place, so it was nice to get to explore all the little buildings of the temples, and the little pathways between them which is always fun!
