Ukimido Zen Temple

Posted by
Stu (From Scotland | Working in Kyoto, Japan) on 28 December 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This temple was originally constructed in 995 A.D. but the present one was rebuilt in 1937 after being damaged in a typhoon in 1934. It stands on Lake Biwa, the largest fresh water lake in Japan.
