JAPAN ~Mt Koya-Autumn colors at Fudo Hall-UNESCO~

A typical lovely view of Japan arrived today...A nice temple surrounded by beautiful nature...The red and orange colors of the leafs are just wonderful... It is known as one of Japan's holiest mountain range and seems to be a unique spiritual place... You can feel the spiritual atmosphere just by looking at this card...
Lovely but really tiny stamps!

Mount Koya is a mountain in Wakayama prefecture to the south of Osaka. It is the center of Shingon Buddhism – a buddhist sect which was introduced to Japan in 805 by Kobo Daishi (aka Kukai), one of the most significant personalities in Japan’s religious history. There are over 100 buddhist temples standing in Mount Koya area. And one of the main attractions there is staying overnight in a temple.

Fudo Hall, a small temple hall which houses a statue of Fudo Myoo, one of the Five Wisdom Kings and protector of Buddhism. The statue is said to be carved by Kobo Daishi, one of the most important figures in Japanese religious history.
