Hyakki Yagyō Scenery (2)

As I have recently come back from Japan, I’ve taken a few more pictures from the areas that appear in Hyakki Yagyō. As the post tries to be mostly visual, I’ll try not to get too much into descriptions and the importance of each place, just let you catch a glimpse of them. These are my photos, so they might be a little artistic (read: loopsided or overexposed).

Zozo-ji (San’en-zan Zōjō-ji (三縁山増上寺 San’en-zan Zōjō-ji) area (Minato, Tokyo), with the main temple and Tokyo Tower behind it. The area where Ko is planted is between the graveyard behind the temple and Tokyo Tower.
