The courtyard was deserted

Shot at Confucius shrine in Nagasaki city, Nagasaki. This shrine was completely Chinese style. It is said that this temple is the only temple which is built in the full-swing Chinese style. When I walked around the precinct, I felt as if I was in China.

In the first place, it was rare to see Confucian temples in this country. Nevertheless, the Confucianism was an official ideology of Tokugawa shogunate. Yet it might not be common to built Confucian temples during the era. It was just wondering.
