I was taken to visit the Shrine by my friends Nobuyuki Aoki and Yuichi Ochiai (on right) on an afternoon prior to going to the airport.

And, here I am with Prof. Ochiai, proving that I exist and actually visited the place.

Below is one of the pagodas that exist at the shrine.

At the right (above), we have a picture of another of the buildings, although surrounded by extensive shrubbery.  I suspect this may be a place of solitude for the monks.  Lastly, just below is a shot of the main gate of the shrine.  We actually entered by a different route, leading through a tunnel from the parking lot, and then up an elevator, until we burst out with the view of the first picture above.   © David Ferry 2016
