  • Very good! Highly recommend

  • Speaking statue of Buddha of Todai-ji Temple is here Katsuyama says scale is undoubtedly Japan's largest great Buddha. Many statue towering on either side, as well as the Buddha statue and wall lined up on one side and force them together is breathtaking. It is, however, almost no historical value. I am surprised that besides made small so far in the five-story pagoda, Japan garden, Temple, and modern Hall. May be worth this is kept a few hundred years. Monzen-Machi, and become shutter Street beginning scenes of the movie spirited away Sen to Chihiro and exudes everyday scenery.

  • It is built in the Rinzai Myoshinji Temple sect Daishi mountain Qing Dai Temple personal private property. Grounds, buildings, statues which greatly overwhelmed. Went just imagine "the temple is so different. Katsuyama city from the five-story pagoda scenery never was inside. Thought the situation was quiet, however, individuals have built in much of what I think is somehow not. Monzen-Machi were all closed shop non-negated. Temple, not a little bit more as a tourist destination somehow.
