Kingyū-in (金牛院)

Kingyū-in (金牛院)

The name of this sub-temple can be (almost) literally translated in "Golden Calf", a term that would probably be inappropriate for a Christian church but is apparently perfectly fine for a Buddhist temple. The temple cannot be regularly visited, and there has been no special openings in recent years (or at all), hence only a couple of front-yard-shots are available. You can actually have a stroll in the front yard for the gate is usually open, but apart from a nicely trimmed tree there is not much to see.
