子の権現天龍寺 (Nenogongen Tenryuu Temple), Hanno, Japan
This temple is my last favourite one in the Chichibu mountains. Instead of the initially planned race (my teammates ranked 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the same time), I went for my 4 hours ride on Saturday morning, which means on a beautiful weekend day. So I was not alone on the road, and I met (and passed) many tourists, riders and walkers, all climbing up the same one-way road, which turned out to be a pretty nasty climb. And I soon got why they were so many, as I reached the top : an impressive temple was standing at the top, with some souvenir shops, and a few meters down, an amazing view on the whole Saitama plain.
