Kawasaki Daishi Temple

Emi heard about a Wind Chime Market at the Kawasaki Daishi Temple, so off we went to Kawasaki to check it out. The Wind Chime market is supposed to be an annual event held in July and is said to be quite  popular.

The walk leading to the Temple is lined with colorful vendors selling all sorts of things.

After passing all the vendors we reached the gateway to the temple.

And, this is the temple.

As I approached the Temple entrance I noticed this little girl and I thought she was going to start a hip-hop dance routine or something.

A view from within.

Near the Temple was a small pond. The Turtles were playing King-of-the-hill.

It proved to be quite crowded.

There were also many vendors set up around the Temple grounds selling food and drinks.


This senior citizen has the right idea, just sit under some shade and drink a beer.

One can't go wrong with yakisoba!

The girl on the left is looking at fresh peaches.

Everyone is enjoying the great atmosphere, it's like a big party.

No Temple would be complete with out a big incense burner.

Time to start working our way back to the train station. Passing back through the gateway.

As we're leaving others are still arriving.

Passing back through the street vendors.

And, here we are at the train station. All-in-all, it was a wonderful day!

Thanks for stopping by!
