Photographer's Note

As I stated earlier, I was the only human out and about in the early hours of the morning, that is before this man appeared in front of me. He looked as if he had stepped out of an Akira Kurosawa film about mediaeval Japan. If it wasn't for the power lines overhead, the roadsigns and the modern aspect of the shop in front, i could well have walked into old Japan. He walked with a purpose and if he was aware of me, he paid no heed. N.B. You will see him later and the object of his mission.

In front of him is the Goju-no-to pagoda:

Goju-no-to, a vermilion red Five-Storied Pagoda built in 1407AD, shows a splendid structural beauty which skilfully combines the beauty of Japanese and Chinese architectural styles. Goju-no-to is 27.6 metres high. Goju-no-to is located next to Senjokaku Shrine.
