Myoeji Temple's Lush Surroundings (Yame City, Fukuoka Prefecture)

Myoeji Temple was mostly deserted when we visited. It's an idyllic space filled with plants and trees, as well as a red Chinese-style temple at the side, seemingly misplaced in Japan's mostly earth-toned temples. Like the temples featured in our previous post, Moeji is part of the Yame-Fukushima Traditional Architectural Preservation Zone.

Thank you. I love how typically Japanese it is (except for the Chinese-style structure). The plants surrounding the grounds were very refreshing too.
