Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple made of brick looks more like a school at first glance. But then you notice the curling roof corners and ornate doors. The interior is dark, elegant and calm. The church hosts a Buddhist festival, Bon Odori
, every July, often around the same time as the International District's celebration of Japanese heritage. The peaceful park across the street has an enormous temple bell sheltered under a canopy and a larger-than-life-size statue of the founder of Jodo Shinsu Buddhism. Be well. Zen.
