Walking from the center of Shizuoka to Kiyomizu Park in the east, I happened across the entrance to a temple, and decided to go inside for a look. It's only small and didn't take me long to get around, but I found a peaceful graveyard with some serene statues, among them the Kannon, the Buddhist goddess of mercy.

I came to Japan from Manchester, England in 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I'm not working, I write satire and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check YouTube for a taste.
