The pilgrim's route from Yasaka-ji to the next temple, Sairin-ji, passed beneath this blooming camellia just outside Yasaka-ji's main gate.
The path led through fields of rice, leeks, and cabbages...
Tucked away in a copse of trees in the midst of farm fields was this lovely Shinto shrine, here seen over a field of cabbages. In addition the 88 "official" temples (fudasho
) of the 88 Temple Pilgrimage there are twenty other sacred temples (bangai
) along the route along with numerous other shrines. Some, like the one above, aren't even marked on the maps.
The gate (torii) to the small shrine in the fields.
Here, a short but well-maintained segment of the pilgrim's path branches of a rural road.
