  • 國寶,日本自中國傳入佛教,妥善保存,珍貴的唐傳佛文化,在中國不易見,反在日本發揚保存,只可惜此地信仰觀世音不多,傳教與信仰功能視乎不大,所幸當地政府列為文化保存,反倒幽靜
  • However, I wonder. We went up to the Yamato dynasty is defeated at the battle of baekgang, but from the Emperor far away from Asuka chikushi? Even Akira Emperor's Empress and later died in the Asakura Palace and satol Emperor after the child. As a personal opinion, originally from the Emperor Palace of Asakura chikushi were, but were defeated in the battle for the cowed and moved on the ground, not what I think. Sense also laid a defensive demon Castle Mizuki, Yashima, Bizen, etc. I'd think leave satol Emperor headed there, Daiwa, there is another country where Soga Iruka think politics or things, caused the coup from the past.
