One more temple on top of the mountain waited for us!
Three days in a row, we climb up the mountain under the sweaty heat! Tanukidani Fudo-son (狸谷不動尊) welcomed us on top of the mountain. It is located at so-called evil gate (鬼門) of the Kyoto city to protect everyone in the city. The head monk who is GTS's college-time sempai, gave us icy chilled Oshibori and fan (うちわ) then invite us into the main hall to meet Fudo-myo-o (The Immovable). 250 steps with long winding slope road tired us but fortunately we had a chance to cool down at the top! Survived!
