We had another stroll around Temple 75 in the early morning before the crowds.

Temple 78 Goshoji (Temple of Illuminating Local Site)



Temple 79 Tennoji (Emperor’s Temple) has a shrine next to it.



We walked on back lanes, passing people going about their daily life on the farms and city streets.







Although we were planning to use a rest hut up ahead to sleep, and it turned out to be a most welcoming place for henro to rest complete with outdoor toilet and a fridge full of cold ice tea and oranges, it was in someone’s back yard.

This man must have been a henro himself for he had placed 3 tatami mats under a nearby bridge for henro to sleep on.

That is where we camped.P1010202
