Shinsho Temple

A blue-roofed temple in Hachioji

On a rainy day I was walking through Hachioji when suddenly something blue caught my attention. It was the roof of Shinsho-in. The roof tiles have a very bright color; perhaps they are even more striking on a gray day. The graveyard of the temple extends a bit uphill and from there you have an even better view of the roof, which has golden decorations on top that go well with the blue tiles.
