Hodaiji Temple in Shizuoka, Japan

An oasis of serenity and harmony hiding in the core of downtown Shizuoka is Hodaiji. In front of the main hall of this Buddhist temple is a lovely pond filled with golden carp. The grounds are adorned with religious statuary and sculpted greenery. Adjacent is a graveyard with monuments honoring generations of loved ones. Unfortunately, nothing about this temple is available online. Perhaps they want to keep it a secret so its beauty is never marred by curious tourists.
