The history and photos of Byodo-in. The independent Buddhist temple has Japan's typical Jodo-shiki teien (Pure Land garden). Byodo-in has national treasures including Amida-do (Ho'o-do) hall and Buddhist images.
Rainy season (Tsuyu: ) is an interesting time of year. On the one hand it’s most often raining! But on the flip side, the Hydrangea’s (Ajisai) are in full bloom, and everything else is beautifully lush and green.
