Kofukuji's 52 stone steps now under repair
The beautiful 52 stone steps leading the way from Sarusawa pond to Kofukuji Temple is now under repair. 52 is one of the symbolic number in Buddhism. I usually tell its meaning to guests while walking up the steps .... well, now I need to find something else to talk about!
The repair work is scheduled to complete by March 26, 2010.
