Guardian Dog In Yushima Seido

Guardian dog in Yushima Seido

The guradian dog in Yushima Seido opened its eyes wide

Shot at Yushima Seido, a former Confucian temple in Ochanomizu, Tokyo.

Once this temple had dedicated to Confucius. A statue of an old guardian dog which was not used anymore was in the corner of the temple. It opened its mouth and eyes and seemed to be surprised a little.

Maybe it was surprised at the trend of the times. During the Edo period, Confucianism was the orthodox knowledge in the shogunate administration and the temple was one of the seats of learning. Yet many people think it was about to become a thing of the past now.
