Myooji Temple

 This is the storehouse at the temple. Most temples, at least large temples, will have a building like this. It is very strongly made and it is a safe place to store their valuable art when it is not on display.

Apparently there has been a temple on this site for more than a thousand years. The sect has changed a few times but it has been a Buddhist site for all that time.
 Near the temple buildings, I found this upside down more-than-a-meter-tall water contain, with two large carefully finished stones next to it. I have no idea why it was there, but obvious it is upside down to prevent it from filling with rain water and becoming a mosquito farm.
This is the view from the street in front to the temple. If you looked out the second floor windows of the temple, this is what you would see.
