A beautiful setting . . .

Another example of the gassho-zukuri style of house building in the unspoiled village of Ogimachi which is so worth a visit!

Myozenji is the biggest Gasho construction in the village. From the second floor, you can take a nice view of the village.

The structure of the house itself was worth visiting, but comparing with neighboring gassho-style houses such as kanda house, people here are not friendly at all, and seemed not welcoming the guests very much...

This must be one of the most unusual Shin Buddhist temples in Japan or anywhere in the world. It belongs to the Higashi Honganji (Jodo Shinshu) school.
