Photographer's Note

Here is 750 years of history for you.

This is the Eiheji or known as the temple of eternal peace. But the picture is just a tiny section of it.

It is one of Soto Zen's two head temples. It is located in the deep mountains near the rugged west coast of Japan.

Dogen Zenji the founder of Eiheiji, was born in 1200 A.D he devoted his life in the true Zen, so he went to China and practised for 4 years, then returned home in 1228.

In 1244 he built this temple and his teachings are still in practise today.

The whole building consists of 17 parts, I know this is only the stairway, but next time I will show you more of it.

This is part of the outside of the temple stairs leading to another temple.

I hope you like it
