Not far from our house in Japan, there was a these tempels, surrounded by this cute old village.
I used to walk there with the girls all the time. Its is so beautiful and peaceful. I would go there and leave with a new energy, and feel so calm. In the little village around the tempels, they would have little shops where you can buy beers, ice cream, candy, even little toys, crapes and their famous soba nudles.
These pictures are from January 09, even though the pictures realy do no justice i still wanted to share them because I miss the place, and chances are we will never go back there again, but it will still always be a special place to me.
