Katsuo-ji main gate by Tim-Wilko Katsuo-ji main gate by Tim-Wilko
Katsuo-ji, also known as “the temple of winners luck”, is a temple in the northern hills of Osaka prefecture.

Didn't have to wait too long to get a photo without any people in the way luckily. The day before it was so busy that I wouldn't have even been able to get to the temple!

This was featured as the "picture of the day" on Japan Today, a Japanese news site:

Past the peak now I think. These photos are from a couple of weeks ago. Looking forward to taking snow pictures in Shiga now. Bet you have plenty of that!

Haven't been to Shiga. Not sure where I'm going to go this winter other than to Nagano to take photos of the Monkeys in the hot spring. I might head up to the Hakoda mountains in a month to take photos of the trees covered in snow on the mountain peaks.
