Otagi Nenbutsu Temple, Kyoto, Japan

Home of 1200 Rakan statues - a stunning display greets you in one of the most beautiful old neighborhoods in Kyoto.  Rarely visited, this temple envelopes you in a superb zen-like experience, especially in the fall when the autumnal breeze rejuvenates your spirit as crimson leaves swirl to your feet.  I visited twice, mingling with the spirits, taking away a greater understanding of Shinto.
