Toshodaiji was built in the year 759 by the Chinese priest Ganjin, who was invited by the emperor to improve Japanese Buddhism. A wooden statue of Ganjin quietly sits in the north building, his face beautifully gleaming in meditation.

The Kondo (Golden Hall), reopened to public in 2009 after 10 years of renovation, is a national treasure and houses an amazing Senju (1,000 arms) Kannon image. Senju Kannon statues usually have only dozens of arms, but the one you see here really has 1,000 arms!
