Exploring near Buko-san (Mt. Buko) and another temple

Today I cycled around the meandering foothills of Buko-san to enjoy its view and soak up the local scenery. This included yet another temple (not one of the 34 pilgrimage temples), bamboo groves, tea plantations, the park that is filled with blooming flowers in spring currently under construction and many quaint country houses and windy little paths. I have no specific knowledge about where I went, just my handful of photos: including an endearing dragon fountain, a number of Jizo statues and this modern yet rather elaborate temple and garden abounding with statues. It was 3 degrees and gnawing through the gloves.
