#26: Buddha at Bentendo — January 26, 2013

A weekend in central to Tokyo isn't complete without taking a few moments to enjoy the various landmarks within Ueno Park.

The Manga University Daibutsu is particularly fond of the colorful Bentendo shrine, which sits on an island in Shinobazu Pond. The structure was built to honor Benzaiten, a goddess of the arts.
