About this photo

Shot at Ninna-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Kyoto. The statue with a stern look was Nio which was a muscular guardian of the Buddha. The statue was stationed at the gate built in the 17th century at the entrance of the temple. And it kept staring at every worshiper who went through the gate every minute. It was guarding the sanctuary.

Yet it stood at the main entrance. I thought the malevolent force usually crept from behind. So it was much better to give importance also for the back entrance.
