Michael’s photos from Hasedera Temple

The Hasedera Temple was the second most beautiful place I visited in Japan, next to Mount Fuji. The flowers, statues and buildings all added to the serene atmosphere. I felt at peace just walking along the paths within the temple. I definitely recommend this picture perfect spot for anyone visiting Japan!
