December 2, 2017 - Sendai - touring temples on bicycle

Sendai is home to some beautiful temples! Riding on a rental bike and touring them was one of the best parts of this trip. Our guides Keiko and Taco obviously picked the most beautiful -- Shoko gokurakuji, Koshoji, Yakushido. Fall foliage was in full swing, and it really added to the experience.

Yakushido is a functioning Shingon temple, I would love to stay for awhile and see a homa service at Yakushido, and also learn more about the history of each temple.

Renting bikes in Sendai! With best travel buddy ever ;)
