I found a small relief with traditional motif.

BTW, it is raining in this week. Maybe I won't go driving for a while.

Good morning G+ guys. After the day, all rail ways and highways are restored today. Aftershocks wich can be felt were only two or three. It is a little bit strange, though. Much more tremors happen after big earthquakes usually.
Anyway, transportation system get green, lifelines are getting restored in epicenter Hokusetsu areas, include Takatsuki, Toyonaka, Minō, Suita each city.
Most people are going ordinary life, meanwhile 1k around people are still staying in shelters of the epicenter area.

An earthquake measuring 5.9 on Richter scale at 7:58 AM in northern area of Osaka.
I'm Ok at all, but some trains stop in large area of Kansai. Aviation service is acctive.
It is a very local type earthquake, so should be careful about moving especially in Osaka Prefecture.

Ksitigarbhas(jizo).
They have unique attributes rather than traditional ones. Some of you remember the statues in Suma Temple I posted before. Yep, both temples are same buddhist denomination, Shingon-shū.

"Toward Arima-Fuji
The fog sinking on the bottom,
Looks like the ocean
I just heard the sound of waves
It was actually rustle of pine groves."
Tanka by Emperor Kazan

The view from the temple is really spectacle.
Unfortuately it was the overcast rather than fog on this day, but I could find clearly some landmark as Mt.Arima-Fuji, Kobe-Sanda Premium Outlets, and Mt.Rokkō far way.

I translated that tanka arbitarily, sorrily I'm not sure about strict rule of English tanka.
