Followed by the lush backyard of the Komozenji Buddhist Zen temple in Dazaifu, my second favorite thing required an upward glance. On its rooftop were more treasure troves for the eye. Roof tile ends were incised with various relief designs. The tiles appeared to ripple like water. Creatures reminding me of the japsang on Korean rooftops performed headstands, contrasting with the warm glow of early autumn leaves. I love to look up!
