Stairway In Ikegami Honmon-Ji

Steep stairway in temple

The stairway continued to the gate

Shot at Ikegami Honmon-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Ikegami, Tokyo. A long steep stairway was at the entrance of this temple which was built in 1282. Anyone who wants to enter the precinct have to climb this staircase with 96 steps. I thought it was a hard to not only older people but also young people.

During I watched, an old man appeared and started to climb. He slowly climbed up stairs. After he reached to the top of the stair, I started to climb this stairway determinedly.
