I decided to visit Ryozen Kannon temple. From a distance, I could see the Buddha statue!

At the ticket counter, the person started to speak Japanese to me. In order to play along, I tried to listen to what she had to say. In fact, I did understand what she said but I guess I blew my cover by telling her it was my first time. She switched to English after taking out an English brochure.

The temple was very quiet.

I took the incense stick and placed it at the incense holder. This was very similar to what Chinese Buddhist did, the only difference is Japanese uses one thick incense stick.

I did not went through the hall as I just want to come and see the Buddha statue.

Head out to the next location which was reviewed to have good autumn view. I guess I was late again 😦

This is Shinnyodo Temple. Established in 984. I did not pay to visit the inner hall. Just walk around the area to take random pictures.

Got some chance to take a selfie again 😛

It was not that bad consider I was slightly late for the peak.

While I was at the entrance, I was mesmerized by this tree along with the entrance.
