  • Look in the news end of the temple with fire torches, the run around the corridors. Torches are "sewage takes Wells' not to be missed. February saw pass before climbs the stairs because there are stones underneath the stairs beside the chapel that unprovoked "Furthermore it lightly and not stairs". February is at the back of the Hall seems to be possible is a man of inspiration. He was enshrined as a lookout post of hariti was still a demon behind the Temple of hariti. Remember when was human blood taste around the hariti in pomegranate, pomegranate seems a substitute. Hee ~.

  • 相對要付錢入內的東大寺和春日大社,免費參觀的二月堂反而遊客流量比較少,但也值得一看。經過長長的石樓梯和兩旁連绵不絕捐贈的石柱,便到達位於山丘、居高臨下的古木造建築[二月堂]。二月堂外望的景色一流,除了東大寺全景和奈良公園外,還可鳥瞰奈良市,在夕陽時份還可欣賞夕陽美景。 
  • Omizutori at February famous chapel is. And one leg stretched back, not only the great Buddha Hall is a stunning view from the corridor. NARA is todaiji Temple is so far I got. I think.
