  • I went in that although the Temple Museum quality works felt at the reception and admission fee is 1000 yen, while there are pleasant. Such as Earl of Buddhist nirvana is larger than thought pieces, and the color was vivid. And where's Wally?, Earl himself depicted in works on par with was. Even though most people are saddened, as Earl of secular as it is human.. The garden's Kadokawa koetsu made. Is to be expected.

  •  Every 3 years-went to the nirvana of tohaku is published in April. Land surrounding Hideyoshi Temple was moved to an intensive at the doorstep of Urasenke. Such as priest guide has been posted over on the first floor from the second floor of the Museum is Brazil, explained. I said I find real touch that seems to be our reproductions are usually different. Taro's Dragons of Shinzo Abe ", Earl of ' got what Nirvana had just read a little. It was after this, shinnyo-do Temple I saw Nirvana thoughts of that felt timeless and deeply memorable day. You can also honami kōetsu and Yukari, koetsu garden garden view. I think as a tourist a sober impression is good temples.

The temple was moved a few times before arriving at the current site in 1587. From now until the temple is 2-Two hundred years later have moved 3 times, (location), a big fire destroyed most of its buildings, leaving only the Kyozo and Hoko standing.

  • I worship at the reclining figure publishing period. Nirvana not as much tofuku-ji Temple still in size, but I on the other hand, very close to, and in that they know well above the drawing, you can watch from the second floor worth a look is. Garden of Threesomes is playful and tastefully.
