Suzumushi Temple

  Jan 15th, 2012

I visited Suzumushi Temple in Arashiyama, Kyoto in Summer and enjoyed the speech given by the monks there. It was not a large Temple and the grounds were not extensive, but many people were queued up to get inside and the monks prepared tea and sweets to enjoy as they explained the history and humor of the Temple.
