本土寺の紅葉! - Hondoji Temple's Autumn Foliage

行ってきました、本土寺の紅葉!

本土寺は実は僕が以前住んでいたところからめちゃめちゃ近い。しかし行ったことがないどころか、数ヶ月前まで名前すら知らなかった...(笑)。

今週末は紅葉を見るにはうってつけの天気でした~。それにしても、先日テレビで取り上げられたらしく、その影響もあってか凄い人でした。僕たちが着いた午後一時過ぎには入場に2、30メートルの列が...。

でも中に入ってみると紅葉が本当に綺麗。行った甲斐がありました~ぁ!

Finally... we went to Hondoji Temple to see its autumn foliage!

In fact, Hondoji Temple is very close to where I used to live. The funny thing, though, is that not only I have never been to the place but also I didn't even know this place until a few weeks ago. :-)

It was a perfect weather to see autumn foliage this weekend. The temple was busy with lots of people who also came to see the trees with lovely colours, which might have been partly because it appeared on television a few days ago. When we arrived at the temple after 1:00PM, there was a queue of 20 to 30 metres long.

Once we got inside, the place was full of autumn foliage. It was well worth it!
