It\'s rainy season in June,sometimes might be fun hiking in rainy!
We planed to go to Katsuoji temple Minoh. I\'ve lived near this area when I was childfood but never visited there yet. TravBuddy meet-up gave me nice opportunities always,so I can visit there today,fainaly!! Katusoji is quite rural. We took a train from Umeda to Takatsuki then took a bus about 30min. That road is winding and reach top of mountain...I feel we came to far away from town.
It\'s being rainy when we arrived at Katsuoji. We suppose to hike in rainy...so we jumped and everything are going well as we planed! But nothing worries,we didn\'t need walk an unpaved path around temple.
Katsuoji temple has so nice atmothphere at entrance that they makes smokey. I don\'t know why they do that. And there are many Daruma-san putting everywhere. Daruma-san is a lucky charm. Especially here,they use it for furtune slip. These Daruma-san made that temple more special. I never saw like that. I was enjoying take pictures. Luckily, it\'s season of a hydrangea. We could see some of them blooming in rainy was so lovely! Also there is a BIG bell,if you hit on it that sound will echo whole the mountain...yes,we did almost each!
It was so nice meet-up even in rainy!! I might love it :)
