Webmaster visited Shomyo-ji Temple this week. It was fine day and new green leaves were very beautiful.

Nio-mon Gate of the temple
The wooden statues of two Nio (the guardians) are on both sides.
The precincts can be seen through the gate. Can you see an arched bridge?
The precincts with a large garden and a pond
The arched bridge leads us to the main hall of the temple.

Some shots of the main hall
We can have a walk around the pond.
Colored carp swim in the pond. Unfortunately the water is not very clear.
The bridge with azalea flowers
A keyaki elm (Zelkova serrata) tree has new leaves. We are in the midst of spring now.
