Back From Japan: Tsutokoyamakosho Temple

This is the smaller of the two Buddhist temples near where we trained:

The playscape is a nice modern touch:

Many Buddhist Temples have associated Shinto Shrines:

Japanese graveyards are amazing.  They are very much a sort of miniature necropolis:

Hey TB - if you don't mind my asking - what was airfare like to Japan?

Not a problem at all Glen.

I paid about $1100 in August to travel in February. We had to make two legs, one from my home to Los Angeles, and from Los Angeles to Narita Airport. One of the things I intend to do differently next year is take Southwest (which gives me two bags free) instead of the Minor Major Carrier I did take, which charged me $25 a bag.

Best advice I can give is go to, which is an aggregator. It allows you to search multiple airlines; it also allows you to set up notifications when fares hit a certain number. Helps to automate from checking every day.
