Ichijo-in offers a Buddhist cuisine, so called vegetarians for the guests.
The recipes included Tofu, several vegetables, and Tempra (deep fried meal).
Tempra hot from the pot would be placed on the dish in the upper tray.
They tasted good. However, I felt something was missing after finishing. I cannot be a vegetarian.
The next day, I went to Kongobu-ji. It was a great temple.
The main building appears at the end of the stone stairs.
This is the main hall of Kongobu-ji. How solemn!
This is Karesansui, an art created in the garden without water. "Kare" means drought, "San" means mountain, and "Sui" means water.
There are traditional landscapes around Kongobu-ji.
Near Kongobu-ji, I took a nice photo at a Torii. The sunshine looked like Halo, isn't it?
