An enormous temple, with enormous trees, this is just a small front gate. After 100-200m of climbing, the temple buildings finally cease and a path up the mountain starts. Over the other side of the mountain were hazy views of Fuji-san capped in snow, and down the other side, a refreshing onsen. This all happened on Tuesday this week, the holiday we earned through attending the PAGES workshop last month.

Fabulous picture, Jules.

Yes, I agree.

That is how a temple gate should look!

It was a surprise to me - we'd been there a few years ago (on the same walk) but I'd been focussing my attention on looking for the (not very obvious) route up the mountain and hadn't really paid attention to the temple. But it's huge, and apparently fairly important.
