  •  In the voyage of the Kyoto winter special public, first of all, visit the Sanctum 蟠 Dragon figure. Clapping their hands in place, "singing Dragon" and around the temple, called echo sounds.  Dragon, from the South side to idol worship, not looked at from the West, is depicted on the front. To the 林光院, which premiered this time. Tiger map was used on the brochure cover of "winter in Kyoto journey" is looking for. The fusuma just completed last year by the Chinese painter Fujii springs. Enshrined deity is to face a dragon figure, depicted.  Peeping the dragon face look like cat rounded body, but slightly open one eye is impressive. The tacchu Temple, is the color of the petals from red to white change "Plum Inn the Nightingale".

  • Shōkoku-ji Temple in the head temple of the Rinzai sect shokoku-JI Kinkaku rokuon-ji Temple, Jisho-ji Temple ginkaku the branch is. When I went in the spring of squeal full Tower, Dragon had been published. Singing to loud cries and tap the hands under the Dragon in the Dragon's vessel is not. It is cool stuff in the big picture.

  • In special entrance in winter's beautiful "singing Dragon" came to experience. But not near other than himself is said to echo the Guide's description after the bus 30 people sorting order, place the foot shape, hit clap and clap your hands, the principle should be, shy dragons under the ceiling and a lot of people, and only small quacks. He was up there though, just 八方nirami dragon eye movement is done. Books do not only came back to Tokyo, said Kyoto Roman temple where Ito JAKUCHU grew up watching TV, and painting is, of course, also the grave Guide did not explain anything. And other tour bus still studying shortages tend to be. Kinkakuji, ginkakuji in the Temple of tohshougu (the Kyoto gozan No. 2) tohshougu case is much more on the check is. Popular is the opposite. Stunning character drawing of Lotus Sutra in the original (lined with character of the Buddhist scriptures of houcakyou, and line)! Statue of Ashikaga Yoshimitsu was lost in the sauce were somewhat poor in eyebrows.
