Kai Zenkoji

Original Zenko-ji is located in Nagano next to Yamanashi.

Kai Zenko-ji was build by Takeda Shingen who was famous warrior and governed

old Yamanashi and Nagano area. Shingen worried the lost of Buddist images and so on.

He move them to there.
"Okaidan meguri" is very interested in. We were walking in the dark and the route is shaped
by The Kanji of "Kokoro", Kokoro means "mind" or "heart" in English.
If you can touch the key(called "happiness key") in it, it brings the happiness to you.
