Hanging Bell

One of the great parts of Japan was the details. While the stones are the central
attraction, the environment is what makes the temple so cool.

Bell Hanging

The combination of bell, the traditional roof, and the setting makes this shot very Japanese.
(I guess shot on Japanese film with a Japanese camera doesn't hurt either).

Cleaning Fountain

When you enter temple areas you are supposed to clean your mouth and hands.
Westerners are excused (it might be just a Buddhist thing), but these fountains are found at many of the larger
sites.

Corner Detail

I can't even begin to imagine how much work it must be to build these
temples with the details that are in them.
