On the second to last day of visiting Dharma relatives and temples associated with my spiritual ancestry we visited the temple where Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett spend a few years running a temple in the small village of Hagino in Mie-ken. It is just off highway 43, 10 km NW of Tsu.

The village Head Man met our bus at the highway on his bike and escorted us through the rice fields to the temple.

This was the smallest temple visited so far and it was beautiful! I can understand why Rev. Master liked it so much.
