岩水寺

Today, I'm in Hamamatsu! This is my last time hanging out with Celes before my ventures to China. For those of you that don't know, I'm going to Beijing for a month to study Go! Anyways, that's soon, not now. For now, I'm in Hamamatsu!
Today, Celes and I went to a place north of Hamamatsu, in another small town. It's called 岩水寺(Gansuiji). That technically means it's a temple, and there certainly was a temple tthere, but after that, there is the prefectural park. It was a really beautiful, serene place. Here are a bunch of pictures from the adventure!













This is the Gansuiji abandoned hotel. Well kinda anyway. The bottom part has partially been turned into a shakuhachi (Japanese flute) work shop/classroom.
