Face Surrounded By Branches

Buddha image in Takahata Fudo

The statue stood in the woods

Shot at Takahata Fudo, a Buddhist temple in Hino, Tokyo. This temple has a long history. According to legend, it was built about over 1000 years ago. Yet there were no such old architectures in the precinct. Most of the architectures here were rebuilt because they were made from wood. It is difficult to preserve the wooden architectures for a long time.

When I walked around the precinct, I found a big stone statue. It was a statue of Buddha. The trees surrounded it. And its face was seen between the branches.
