SpotSeiryo-ji Temple

The Temple in "The Tale of Genji," Sagashakado Hall enshrines the image of the Shakyamuni Buddha robed in beautifully represented, flowing cloth that falls across his body in a technique known as Seiryo-ji-shiki. For added amusement, after paying respects at Seiryo-ji, stop by the neighboring Saga tofu vendor, the old establishment Morika, to stock up on some tofu and abura-age tofu souvenirs.
