Is your destination the kind of circular roof that's looks like a church?
Seen from the bridge, Yushima Seido seems even more lost in the modern city. Ad so seems the little river, wedged among roads and railways..I'd like to see the whole place in the ancient times, when both temple and river were probably among the nature..
