Calming Temple Trips

Two pretty trips to temples. Japanese temples (I think these are both Buddhist but I don't trust myself so I'll stick with Japanese!) are so peaceful and calming. I just wish I had my brother Andrew as a constant photographer on my shoulder. My little camera and pitiful photography skills just don't do justice to the prettiness of Japan.

One was up a long, snowy path on the top of a hill near our apartment.

Gorgeous views of Sendai

Simple and beautiful.

The way back down was stressful, but やった!

Trip number two, this one was bigger and a lot easier to get to. In between our house and central Sendai, a short train ride away.
Lots of lovely lanterns everywhere

Back down the lantern lit path

I like this photo the best :)
