Myoden Temple Walk (Part 2) / 妙典お寺巡り (パート2)

Continuing our temple walk around Myoden in Chiba Prefecture.

妙典お寺巡り散歩のつづき。





The next temple on our walking map was Myokakuji.

地図で次に載ってたお寺は妙覚寺。






Jogyo Bodhisattvaa / 浄行菩薩
 
 
Also not on the map, but we found an out of service Tower Records vending machine.
 
地図には載ってませんが、タワーレコードの不良自動販売機発見。
 
 
 
We seemed to have discovered a vending machine graveyard.
 
これはもしかして、自動販売機の墓なのかな。
 
 


Tokuzouji / 徳蔵寺
 
 
 
 
Edogawa River / 江戸川
 
 
Joyato / 常夜灯
 
This lamp has stood here in since the Edo area (around 1836) and was used as a beacon to show the way to Naritasan Temple for people coming from Edo.
 
常夜灯は江戸時代があり、江戸から成田山に参拝する人のための道導。
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 

 




 
 
 
 
 
 

 Udon shop [Sasaya] / 笹屋うどんの跡
 
[Sasaya] was an udon shop that was in business during the Edo era and because of its location it served many travelers.
 
「笹屋」は江戸時代で営業したうどん屋でした。
 
 
Old Asako Mikoshi Making Shop / 旧浅子神輿店店舗兼主屋
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And so ended our walk.
 
猫を発見したところでお寺巡り散歩終了。
