Goubouji Temple Bell




When I was walking home from the Kagoshima sluice gate, I saw a sign for what I thought was a small shrine. When I went to look for it, all I could find was a Buddhist temple, called Gobouji.



The only interesting feature was the bell out front.



But...



It's a nice bell.

In the pockets of Big Can




Found this parking lot on my way home from the Kagoshima sluice gate site. I assume the can was part of a restaurant display at one time. I'm not really sure what the parking lot itself is for. There were a few people walking out of a small building at the other end, going to their cars. Maybe it's a junkyard/recycle shop.



Right next to a used Hello Kitty "Magical Pumpkin" ride car.



I would have gotten closer, but the building owner kept giving me the skunk eye.



Wider shot of the parking lot.



Santa's got buns of steel. Or, something close to it.
