Zenkō-ji Temple

Nirvana in the dark
The first image of Buddha was housed here at this temple which is also the largest thatched roof in all of Japan. Our guide took us to the "basement" of Zenkō-ji which is a pitch black maze of sorts that we were told when we navigated it we'd find the key and attain a state of nirvana.
