Reitou-ji is a Rinzai Zen temple in Maesawa Ward of Oshu City, Iwate Prefecture. It has a LOT of rock sculptures and some beautiful plantings. It is also famous as the grave site of Takano Choei's mother!

 

This is a Shito shrine tucked away behind the temple. The moss on the steps was very bright green!
