Shot at Ikegami Honmon-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Ikegami, Tokyo.
The main hall of this temple stands on the hill. So it is necessary to climb the steep stone stairway to reach the hall. And the stairway becomes a place for a workout for the locals. When I visited, some people who wearing a training wear were going up and down the staircase. The exercise might be tough. They breathed hard.
On the other hand, I found a little girl and her father descending the stair happily. They descended hand to hand and the girl jump sometimes.
