Godaido (Godaido Temple) Review

Just to the right of the ferry pier in Matsushima is this small temple constructed in 1609 at the behest of daimyo Date Masamune. The temple is on a tiny islet connected to the shore by two small arched bridges. Animals are carved in the timbers beneath the temple roof and among the complex supporting beams.
