Arete: Finally here!
Me: It only took 4 hours of driving…
Arete: This way, I think. There`s only one possible route!
Arete: Some pretty fancy artwork
Arete: Why`s there a big empty space?
Me: I read online that there were originally Buddha statues throughout but they`re all long gone. I bet one used to sit there.
Me: …And those are all the names of people who have made pilgrimages here over the years.
Arete: There`s a bridge in the middle on top! Oh I see, that`s how it makes a circle!
Arete: Hey, can I climb this ladder?
Me: I think it`s only decoration…
Arete: Wow, the ceiling here is so low…
Arete: Look, they`ve even got shrine stuff
Arete: A monk guarding the exit! There was one at the front too
Arete: They put the grave right behind the sazaedo? It`s so sad that those boys were so young…The Byakkotai
Arete: Hmm… Wonder what he`s looking at…
Arete: Oh, I want my fortune told!
Me: Well? What does it say?
Arete: I dunno. It`s all in kanji.
Me: I`ll take a look later then, when I have a dictionary on hand…
