This temple was founded in 710, the same time the capital of Nara was established. The temple is famous for its 50m-high five-story pagoda, the country's second tallest following that of Toji Temple in Kyoto. In the precincts is recently renovated National Treasure Museum that display the temple's Buddhist art collection. A three-faced, six-armed statue of Ashura is very imposing. This is the nearest sight from Nara stations.

I don't remember how many times I visited this place. I really love this area and I can walk as if I walk in my garden. I will take you to a hidden path, where you would see yourself that you don't know . While walking in the path, chatting is prohibited. You would be alone to face real you.
