I'm tired of Matthew and I'm really tired of cleaning up after him, so let's head back to Japan where our daughter took us to see the Buddhist temple at Sasaguri called Nanzoin. It is the home of a huge reclining Buddha, measuring 41 meters long, 11 meters high and weighing 300 tons. Rumor has it, according to our daughter, that the local priest hit the lotto and had the Buddha made for the shrine, it only dates to 1995.
The whole complex was amazing and I wasn't surprised to learn that it receives more than a million visitors a year.
A few, snark, of the photos we took there.
