Day #1709

Day #1709 Title: The Red Umbrella
Location: Zenkō-ji Temple, Nagano
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: We moved on to the mountain town of Nagano this morning. We are staying in traditional temple lodgings near the Zenkō-ji shrine. Once we had left our bags we had a tasty lunch of the local soba noodles in the town and then we were able to wander around at our leisure. Zenkō-ji is a beautiful Buddhist temple, in the north of the town. The chief priest walks under a red umbrella on his way to the ceremonies. This one was used as a sun shade on a picnic table in the grounds. Read more about my stay.
