The worshipers came and went at the entrance of the main hall

After climbing the steep stairway, I found the main hall of Gokoku-Ji finally. The wooden hall was built in 1682. It was not destroyed by the air raid during WWII fortunately. Unlike the famous Senso-Ji, this temple seemed not to be popular for the foreign tourists. Most of the worshipers in the precinct were Japanese.

I stood just in front of the main hall and held my camera. Some worshipers were wriggling in the frame. It was a peaceful afternoon.
