The wooden pole was erected in front of the hall

This area was the first post station on the Tokaido which connected Tokyo and Kyoto. It was flourish once. Yet it is a silent residential area now. Many Buddhist temples still stand and they remind me the bygone days.

During I rambled along the old Tokaido, I found a big Buddhist temple and entered. A tall wooden pole was stood in front of the main hall. According to what was written on the pole, the festival which commemorates the anniversary of the patriarch's death would be held.
