I seldom do a post that's only photos, but Hondo-ji seems to be an exception every autumn.
I revisited the temple, one of my all-time favourites, yesterday to enjoy its autumn scenery, and I've decided to focus on photos. Because … a picture is worth a thousand words; I've written about the temple before (link, link, link); I'm facing yet another non-stop working weekend and I don't have enough time to write an epic worthy of Ὅμηρος.¹

I went very early, before the crowds of seniors arrived. (Why do old women talk so much and so loudly? Why?) It was an icy morning, and I was sniffling and shivering, but utterly entranced by the temple's beauty. I try to discover new autumn spots every year – this year it was Kamakura – but Hondo-ji is the one spot that draws me back every single season.
If you're wondering why I haven't written about Kamakura yet, no time!, but I've published a few photos on Google+.
