Suma Temple 須磨寺

Suma temple is a Buddhist, Shingon sect, temple established in 886 and rests at the base of the Rokkō mountains not far from the sea coast. Its official name is Joyasan Sumadera, but local people affectionately call it "Mr. Suma's Daishi". Daishi is a Japanese honorific, usually granted posthumously, meaning "great master". Photograph is of many lanterns hanging from the ceiling of a small open-air shrine found atop the large graveyard.
