Japan - Temple of Kwannon at Mizusawa
Lantern slide of Temple of Kwannon at Mizusawa. Mizusawa Temple, founded over 1000 years ago, plays an important religious role as one of the 33 sites of the Kanto Kannon Pilgrimage. It hosts a variety of religious buildings, which are all well maintained. The temple is situated on the mountain side, affording a nice view from many points.
