On Sunday Yurie and I went to visit a temple near by called Kozoji Temple. It’s supposed to be the oldest wooden building in Miyagi prefecture. It was supposedly built in 1177. It was really old looking but in good shape too.
The woods in the area around it were very beautiful. There was also some really old giant trees near the temple you can see two of them in the picture below. They have sacred ropes around them. This place is about 15 minutes from our house. Nice eh!
