Yes, the temperature went up to 25 C today.  I could have gone with a T-shirt.

Kuonji Temple in Mt. Minobu

Katya and I had breakfast in Starbucks. Katya had a venti cappuccino and I, a tall cafe latte.  Milk was fully supplied in there.  We felt pollen.  My skin was itchy. By mini, three of us visited Kuonji Temple in Mt. Minobu established by Nichiren.  It took one and a half hours from the apartment. On the way out from Kofu, we felt less pollen. We did not expect the temples so big. The temples are surrounded by woods. Some cherry blossoms were already in bloom, but the best season has not come yet. Katya is planning to visiting it again on a weekday.
