Zenkoji temple in Nagano city

Nagano city in Japan has a famous temple called "Zenkoji temple". The temple complex has a few different sections and a long entrance lane with shops which can be seen below in the photos. The temple houses the first buddhist statue that supposedly came to Japan, however it cannot be seen and only every 6 or 7 years a copy can be seen as part of a special festival.
