Adashino Nembutsuji (化野念仏寺)is a Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. Situated high on a hill overlooking the city from the northwest, it sits on the site of a graveyard where people formerly abandoned the bodies of the dead, exposing them to the wind and rain. Now, countless thousands of Buddhist statuettes memorialize the souls of the dead.
