    Wat Paknam Narita, Japan

    Random photos from trip to Wat Paknam in Narita, Japan this past January 2015. Sorry for the low quality photos.:
















    About a half hour drive from Narita Airport and there is no train station within walking distance.

    Nice photos, thanks.

    I always enjoy Japan threads having lived there once upon a time. Never been to Wat Paknam though.

    I've never understood the fascination with looking at Thai temples. Aside from one or two, they're almost always aesthetically uninspiring- and guaranteed to make a proper racket at a ridiculously early hour.

    Fuck knows why backpackers go mad for 'em.

    ;-)

    When you've seen and heard thousands of 'em, once a year is enough.

    Went there about 3 years ago - also in the middle of winter. The driver 'knew' the way, and then got lost. They had satnav but didn't know how to use it - eventually I told them to put the telephone number into the system and it appeared on the screen.
    2km from the temple we stopped at a set of traffic lights - straight on and 2nd left it said. Ah, I know from here the driver's wife said, turn right ... we got back there about 30 min later ...
