  • After a visit to Todai-ji Temple, Temple and worship hall and February, finally went in. It was a hustle and bustle of the Todai-ji Temple lies a quiet place. From the area can see the buildings of shoso-in, it was decided to put in was a strict measures and security people have not. Very large and looked in the textbook and peas in a pod, impressed in the azekura built on stilts. I think are now stored in all different places of old, various treasures here was a romantic feel. In the glass case near the little old tiles, were exhibited.

  •  Once upon a time, say the Shosoin, and stilt warehouse of azekura as learned.  We were those of the temple and after February saw the Hall came to the shōsōin.  We in the shoso-in area that hardly anyone before Namdaemun, or great Buddha had people visit the Shosoin, did not meet but until leaving just one pair. Today was the Shosoin treasure seems are housed in reinforced concrete building of the Western Treasure House, East treasure trove. I'm building shoso-in hospital building itself is listed as a national treasure.
