  • Striking red Chinese-style gate. The Palace and is believed in the story really is likely. Was the atmosphere and the oldest Chinese temple in Japan in different temples of Japan.

  • Here generally tends to attention the Mikado (country, important cultural property), in Nagasaki City and as a national treasure 3-point, twofold sofukuji Temple in its (大雄宝殿, remains no. 1 peak gate, oura Catholic Church's one point). I can't watch only here is seen under the eaves of the No. 1 peak gate "structure articles (see attached photo)" beautiful word in maybe Japan Japan. Also recommended that each door blue bat and peony flowers (see attached photo) is bringer [happiness] [strength] to represent so you don't miss. Pseudo inverse can be seen around the hotel, which in addition to gem bundle (but giboshi hilt, see accompanying photo) also is very rare in Japan. Further to the Mazu Temple and enshrined "fair hearing" and "clairvoyant" in Mazu with the decoration of the ceiling so your watch is recommended.

  • This temple feels strongly influenced by Chinese architecture, but with his style and customization typically Japanese. Is not overly large, indeed it is one of the smaller temples generally found by me in my travels in Japan, but I found it quite remarkable as details and colors in its interior. Really derisory input for this beauty.
