Detail shots at Hiyoshi Toshogu. Built as a predecessor to Nikko Toshogu, the color on this temple is excellently maintained.
Hey Sam, I was curious what the first book about Buddhism that you ever read was/what book flipped the "I'm a Buddhist"switch for you (assuming it wasn't the same one)? For me both books were the same, Teachings of the Buddha by Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai, a book thats basically the Buddhist equivalent of the Bibles you find in hotel rooms. This was in high school and my best friend had recently informed me he was Buddhist, so I was on the lookout to learn about it, and this book blew my mind.
