Fudo Myo at Kenzanji


Kenzanji is a small rural temple belonging to the Shingon sect and is located near Hioki in Kagoshima.

The Hondo, main hall, is a large portakabin, but there seemed to be no preparations to build a more permanent structure.


Behind was a small man-made cave containing a statue of Fudo Myo-O that was quite impressive.


The flames painted on the rocks behind the bright blue Fudo were dramatic, almost psychedelic.

While I appreciate art made by artists with great technical skill and vision, I also have a fondness for art not made by artists. While an artist may make a statue that is officially correct, a non- artist is more likely to make a represntation based on impression and perception.....
