Hanya-in is the second temple on the Kyushu Pilgrimage I am walking. Its located in a hilly suburb of Fukuoka City.
Like all 108 of the temples on the pilgrimage it belongs to the Shingon sect.
There was a small Inari shrine in the grounds, and this shrine with a carving of a snake eating its tail. Unfortunately the sign was illegible.
I would have asked the priest but he was busy with a ceremony. The nicest thing at the temple was the big Fudo Myo statue.
At this rate its going to take me years to post everything on the pilgrimage, but on the Japan Visitor Blog i am posting a shorter daily diary. links below.
