ueno koen: rinno-ji

12Mar06

I don’t know much about Rinno-ji temple, which I stopped by on my way to the Tokyo National Museum, except that it’s a sub-temple of the famous Rinno-ji temple complex in Nikko. On my way there, however, I passed the National Science Museum, which has a life-sized model of a diving blue whale out in front. You can just stand right in front of it and think the phrase “peaceful leviathan.” It’s giant. Giant, giant, giant, giant, giant. And somehow, it looks like it’s moving in slow motion.

A superbly psychedelic jizo figure at Rinno-ji.
