Rishō-in (理性院)

Risho-in (理性院) is a little known sub-temple of Daigo-ji. It is not open to the public, but the alley leading to it is free access. At the end of the alley is a large collection of jizo statues (地蔵). When I visited they were well maintained, with recent bright red bibs. A nice pink cherry blossom tree can also be found on the open grounds.
