I have been this temple since when I was born. It's seems so changed a lots to good way. I love the view from this temple. 中山寺は七五三の時から来ています。色々な友達と来ていますが久し振りにたぶん五年くらい振りに来ました。いつの間にか青い塔が建てられておりエスカレーターもでき見違えりました。また初めて梅を見ましたがとても綺麗でした。

It is a huge complex inside, however when I went the entire back half was under construction and so I missed a lot of it. But the part I did see was beautiful! Interesting how they have escalators to get up the stairs.
