Temple in Tenjin
These big wooden guardians stood on either side of the gate to this Buddhist temple, I'm pretty sure it was named Shorin-ji.
There are a number of Buddhist temples & shrines in the Tenjin neighborhood, where my hotel was located. I saw a cat in one of the temple courtyards, & tried to get a picture, but he ran past me, across the street and into an alley. Too fast.
This little shrine was on a street corner near my hotel, between convenience stores & apartment buildings.
