Very beautiful Japanese Guang-Im Temple!

Hi 阿鵬。

Guang In, or Kannon, is not a major deity in Japany, The most famous one is in Asakusa, Tokyo (浅草観音) Thus I was pleasantly surprised to find this temple at Matsushima, Miyagi prefecture (宮城県 松島市)when I visited in 2006 to view sakura or hanami 花見。

Of course I saw a lot of beautiful sakura.
