Japanese Temple Replica

At the back of a cemetery and mortuary, the temple replica area is so peaceful. A final resting place for those who choose to inter their cremains, and a thoughtful place for survivors.

There was a $3 admission fee, well worth the price. There is another part -- "American" -- a short drive. As you leave the parking lot of the temple, stay to the right -- it looks as if you are going to the construction area, but just go back. This will take you to the American part.

Very pretty. Many things to see, including a gift shop. The Koi fish were beautiful, and the whole experience was enjoyable.
