Shrines and temples packed on two streets in Hirosaki

Not far south of Hirosaki Park is Zenringai, a district with two streets packed with 33 temples and shrines, many of them relocated here from their original locations. With there being so many I didn't even try to tell them apart, but just treated them all as one unified experience, soaking up the atmosphere as I strolled around their various grounds. There's an interesting diversity of architectural styles on display, and a large, atmospheric forest graveyard.
