tHe qUirKy jApAn hoMepAge

The "qUirKy jApAn hoMepAge" is quite impressive, and I particularly enjoyed reading what was written in the "Buddhist Sculpture in Japan" section. I found it fairly accurate, and should serve as a quite informative resource for the beginner to Japanese Buddhist sculpture when temple going.

I also really enjoyed reading what Ed Jacob had to say about staying in a Japanese Shukubo (Buddhist Temple Inn). While my wife, her sister and her mother really enjoy getting away for a couple of days to an Onsen (hot springs spa), I would prefer to attend a sesshin at an actual Zen Buddhist monastery instead of staying at a Shukubo or an Onsen. I have done all three (Shukubo, Onsen and Zazen Sesshin), and all were wonderful experiences for me.

Another great one was 窶廩ow to appreciate Shrines and Temples.窶
