The winner is David! The picture was taken in a Buddhist temple in Japan on the island of Shikoku. The island is the smallest of Japan’s 4 main islands and is one of the most remote and traditional areas in Japan. Most tourist usually don’t make it down there, so if you have the chance it is a great way to jump off the normal path.

The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country only this time) will win a link back to their blog with the anchor text of their choice in this post (keep it clean and relevant). Leave your guess and recent post in the comment section below. Laura won last weeks competition of Dutch Wind Power.

I will also stumble and review the latest post of anyone who leaves a comment even if the winner has already been picked (up until next Thursday). Yes, the prizes heavily favor the blogging and travel geeks amongst us. If you don’t have a website, then leave your favorite website or better yet a charity that deserves attention.

Good luck!

Guesses aside, all comments are welcome!

      I might be wrong. I can think of at least one big way I could be wrong.

        • Dave*No Gravatar says:

          Assuming I was correctly observing the presence of kana, the Occam’s razor answer was that the statues were in Japan. But they could also have been in part of Japan’s former colonial empire (probably Taiwan, the only part of said former colonial empire where they would not have been smashed) or in a part of the world with a large emigrant Japanese population, such as Brazil or the state of Hawaii.

          But they were probably in Japan. And they were.

  8. I think Dave nailed it, totally missed that out.

      Nice one Dave, you win! This picture was taken at a small temple on the island of Shikoku while I was walking around on a pilgrimage. What website would you like me to highlight as your prize?

      • Dave*No Gravatar says:

        A former co-worker of mine from Forrester Research, Mark Brown, is quitting that company to start a nonprofit called CitiNature, dedicated to green urban projects around the world. He’s just getting started, and he has a blog/website at I choose to highlight the site.

        Mark is a wideranging international traveler, having lived in Japan, the Netherlands and a host of other nations. I think toddswanderings readers will find CitiNature very interesting.

  10. Hiya Todd, looks like Thailand, just a wild guess.
