Naritisan Temple

Here we go then, my first Japanese temple post!
I recently went on a uni trip to Naritasan temple. It was a great experience. I`d never seen anything like it. The temple and the surrounding gardens were so beautiful. At the entrance to the temple you are asked to wash your hands and mouth in the washing place (I dont know the official name of the washing place), but anyway it`s like a big well with clean water running through it. There was a service taking place inside the temple and buddhist monks were singing while hundreds of people prayed.
