More Dazaifu

Here are some more shots from Dazaifu and around. It is coming close to the New Year, so the town is becoming lively with New Year shopping.

This is my favourite restaurant. This is a chain restaurant, actually. They serve traditional, formal Japanese course meal. The food is tofu based, and many dishes are vegetarian. Quite casual place for this type of cuisine. The place used to be the mansion of the local lord, and is now turned into a restaurant. With reservation, you can request a private room facing the beautiful Japanese garden, and also the type of china to be used in your meal. Some people say that the food is not the very best, but it's quite fine enough for me.

The garden. It is pretty big, and there is a tea house (or tea hut), too.

And this is a Bhuddist temple near the shrine. It is a zen temple. There are all sorts of different Bhuddist temples.

I really like this temple. It is nice at any time of the year. It is quiet here even if it is noisy just outside. Every time I come back to Japan I visit this town of Dazaifu. This town has both lively, down-to -earth daily life and the sacred, peaceful silence.
