Sunday morning, I enjoyed a nice run to Shakujii Park. This time, I found interesting things I never noticed before.
Hondo, or the main building of the temple.
A gate within the temple ground to another part.
"Imaginary animals" (elephant and lion) on the entrance gate.
A nice garden.
The bell structure - a pagoda is seen in the back.
An old farm house (originally built in late 19th Century) is now a museum.
It has a big "kayabuki" roof.
Itanoma - wooden floored room.
Great pine beams holding up the roof.
Large Tatami room that was used for many different functions.
Yamazakura - literally means mountain cherry. They were still beautiful
A spring that provides water to Shakujii Pond.
Tennis courts by Shakujii Park.
A nice plum blossom.
