Photographer's Note

I visited Gokoku-ji located together with an acquaintance in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo on that day. This temple is a temple of the Buzan Sect of Shingon Buddhism where fifth syogun Tsunayoshi Tokugawa was built in response to the wish of his mother in 1681 at the Edo period. Then, this temple turned into a prayer temple which prays for a shogun family's fortune. After the Meiji term, the relation with the Tokugawa family was broken off, and the cemetery of an Imperial family and ordinary people was developed. Some persons in character with a student were making a sketch of temple's building structure on the big campus at the approach which we go to Hondo(Main hall). It seemed that they would sketch Hondo's building of an important cultural property if it sees from a distance. It may be a subject exercise of the summer vacation. She was drawing quite precisely. Time had become about 5 p.m. The heat of daytime also softened, the wind also came out, so it had become the comfortable open air.
