  • Went to a friends house Minami-uonuma we take time. Painting and sculpture of the ceiling in the West the Temple Hall is a stunning works by Ishikawa cloud Butterfly known as wasei-Michelangelo. I in the Vatican in Rome sees statue of David in Florence Pietà statue sculpture painting is comparable to it. Really great thing (^ ^) v must see it. Taken but unfortunately it is not.

  • The temple at the foot of the echigo-rustic. But stunning carvings like reminiscent of Nikko Toshogu youmeimon step by step. I can't help but marvel. As well as sculpture, painting, fusuma, inscriptions until. Forget the time of Ishikawa cloud Butterfly works and enjoyed. Worth a look once they are available.

  • Stunning. The main temple and gardens on their own would be worth a visit, but the carvings on the ceiling of the Kaisando annex are simply breathtaking. Amazing details and colors. You climb some steps to a raised floor so they seem really close. The annex is a tiny wooden framed building with a thatched roof and the whole thing is protected from the elements by a huge roof.
  • The carving was awesome. It's walkable from the local station.
  • And was this impressive temple. Near what you regret passed times but never noticed. It is a temple of butterfly clouds.
