Temple Plumbing 2013

Just after you enter the grounds of a Japanese temple, there's always a fountain for rinsing hands and mouth. Here's examples from the temples I visited when I followed the route of part of the Shikoku Henro ("Shikoku 88").

Temple 37: Iwamotoji

March 29, 2013.

Temple 38: Kongofukuji

March 30, 2013.

Temple 39: Enkoji

March 31, 2013.

Temple 40: Kanjizaiji

April 1, 2013. No, this is not an April fool's joke. Function trumped form at this temple.
