If you're in the suburbs of Shizuoka city to enjoy the traditional ukiyo-e (woodblock prints) at the Tokaido Hiroshige Art Museum, then while you're there it's also worth popping up behind the museum to take a look at Daihoji. It's a small but charming Buddhist temple, with a small but diverse population of interesting statues in the well-tended grounds, and a relaxed atmosphere that will set your mind at ease before or after you see the museum.

I came to Japan from Manchester, England in summer 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I`m not working I write satire at www.iothern.blogspot.com and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check my youtube channel `CunningPunster` for a taste.
