Words-and-Pictures: Yugyoji

Note: This selection of Words-and-Pictures was made on September 10, 2001, as I walked on the Old Tokaido.

Yugyoji is located in Fujisawa in Kanagawa Prefecture, which is Station #6 (from Tokyo) on the Old Tokaido Highway. You can read about my visit to Yugyoji in my Logbook.

The hondo (main hall) where I said my prayers (and yours).

The lovely chujakumon gate, which bears roof tiles indicating association with, and approval by, the Imperial family.

This statue of Ippen stands on a mound in front of the main hall. The pose is unusually dynamic for a statue of a saint.
