Religion in Japan is a little bit complicated. The most widely followed religions are Buddism and Shintoism but people don’t seem to choose one or the other, instead following different parts of each- a bit like pic’n’mix. For instance, wedding ceremonies tend to be Shintoist whereas funerals are almost always Buddhist. That aside, there are lots of shrines and temples to visit and they are always interesting to walk around. This photo was taken in a temple in Hagi, Buddha’s in beanie’s.
