Pilgrims Guide To Forty-Six Temples by Shiro Usui

The temples of Japans ancient capital Kyoto are world-renowned for their beautiful architecture, their lovely gardens, & the priceless works of art they enshrine. But they are primarily sites of religious practice, & this contemplative guide to forty-six temples of the city (including a few in nearby regions, & Eiheiji in Fukui Prefecture) leads us under their mossy eaves to the feet of their burnished images with the heart & mind of the devotee. Reviewing the past & present glories of these religious centers, the author calls on major Japanese writers, artists, & philosophers for their remarks & reminiscences as well, weaving a tapestry of mood that depicts the ancient temples more truly than any other guide has.
