Japan…as Seen by an American Motorcyclist Photo Gallery
Approaching Japanese Temple
The approach to a temple off the beaten path near Kamakura. While there are many religions in Japan the Buddhists and Shintoists are in the majority. The Shinto shrines are not so interesting to outsiders as they are rather bare and without images. Of course the huge images of Buddha are always interesting. The Shinto shrines are believed to contain some remain or relic of the first Japanese Mikado who is looked upon by Shintoists as a Diety.
