It is always the same. I arrive somewhere and find a place for the sunset - and suddenly clouds materialize above the scene and it rains. In Porto, this was a little extreme as we had rain every single night for about 8 days. This picture was taken on the way home after a failed attempt to wait for the sunset...
Statues are a funny thing in Japan - they come in all shapes, sizes, and numbers. These ones here are from the viewpoint located at the top of of the mountain area in Itsukushima.
On the top of Yamadera temple in Japan, one can find this very famous scene. Apparently, the little house that you see there is actually a grave - a grave for the person that founded that temple in the first place. There are worst spots to be laid to rest I'd say.
