360° VR panorama of the northern end of the top graveyard at Chion-in (知恩院) temple, in Kyoto, Japan. The temple is built on Higashi-yama (East mountain).
In this image you can see the Nuregami shrine (濡髪大明神; Nuregami Daimyojin), and the large grave of Lady Sen (千姫; Senhime).
Chion-in is the headquarters of the Jōdo-shū (Pure Land Sect) of Japanese Buddhism, which was founded by Hōnen. Genchi, Hōnen’s disciple, founded the temple in 1234 in memory of his master. Many of the temple buildings were burnt down in 1633, and were subsequently rebuilt with help from the shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu.
