Japan Buddhis Temple Backdoor

This Japanese Buddhist temple is perched upon the slope of a steep mountain in central Japan. A trail winds up from the valley below to the temple before passing behind the sanctuary and through the courtyard of an empty priest’s residence. My hike this day brought me down the mountain and thus I approached the temple from behind and was able to enjoy the curious experience of entering the temple via the back door.
