Golfing monks hang out in Takayama City
Japan is one of my favourite countries… partly because what you see is not always what it seems!
Whilst in Takayama City in the Gifu Prefecture I was with a group of fellow travellers wondering around town when we stumbled upon a statue of a monk playing golf… to this day I have no idea what it represented as it did not seem to be marked. Now you might not think much to to this, and I’ve seen a lot of little statues of monks in temples doing odd things, but then we walked around the other side!!
Now that was unexpected!!
