Panorama TOKYO : Zoshigaya  

The heat of late summer is still severe in the daytime of Tokyo. Zoshigaya is not only a typical residential area but with several scattered temples and shrines. The precincts of Kishimojin Temple is rich in green and good for taking a rest under the tree during your walk. Since Edo period, the temple has been worshipped for the health and prosperity of children.

The reflection of sunlight on the stone approach was very bright, but impressive.
