Although the Confucian doctrine was recognized all over this country, there were few shrines dedicated to Confucius. This shrine was one of few shrines in this country. In the courtyard, many statues stood.

They were 72 wise men who were pupils of Confucius. Most of them wore a severe expression. Yet I found a smiling statue among them. He carried a smile while he touched his long beard. Not to be disrespectful, I thought his smile was nasty-nice.
