Japanese Temple

Today, I went to Hgashi-honganji Temple.
It was just 5min. walk from Kyoto-station (first picture-very modern) to the temple.
I had lived in Kyoto but it was a first time to go to the temple. Because It is different from my denomination. Higashi-honganji is a head temple of the Shin sect Buddhism Otani party. I am a Shingon-esoteric Buddhist. However most of Japanese people don't mind such a thing. I went to there just sightseeing. It is under repair but still fabulous. I enjoyed Buddhism quiet and spirits.
The last picture is a ginkgo tree's fruits. We had a typhoon last night, so they dropped. You can eat these nuts roasted. Yummy!
