  • Under the beautiful beams and transom from the Imperial Palace, which is a monzeki Temple crafted and filled with, either because the temple Motoyama is often not upright atmosphere, but good customer service attitude. Amazing Buddhist art at the shogoin, keep because we worked in a special public and French travellers we meet. It is going to the location scenery beautiful garden, where this picture, film and drama.

  •  Sacred sites can visit regularly even ago the shrine visited by people of other fall publishing season is non-private that is. From generation to generation, the Royal family celebrates 門主 monzeki Temple, rises from the large door and there remains huge paintings of the Kano school. Feel the elegance even if there is not age, but even new buildings, decoration and garden something neat. It is still a < Imperial Palace". To昇殿first, you can see that just have distance to floor and wall paintings. Able to enjoy the special admission and effect than expected, but this time with just glasses for watching. Have served as the Guide's staff of Shinto.

  • We see it because you cannot see unless you book I was special time with no reservations. Monzeki Temple, also placed the Imperial period only in the forefront in major temples, and felt elegant atmosphere, guests can relax in the quiet, without that person. Stamp album also appeared to be a monk who was written carefully, I liked.
