The tiled roof of Jochi-ji

The silver gray tiles of the Buddha hall are shining brightly in the liquid sunlight of the azure autumn sky.

The sphere on the apex of the roof is called "Nyoi-hojyu" (the precious orb which grants all our wishes).

This precious orb symbolizes the sublime mercy of Buddha which can realize every earnest wish of all living things and save them from perpetual suffering.
