  • As the temples of NARA is better (and felt). Featured here are saying, 5 Ko thinking on the Amitabha Buddha sitting image, change hairstyles changed Buddha ' is. Except for certain periods in early August if you don't book in advance and cannot visit. Words with "Ko" represents a very long time. This kind of hairstyle was and appearance kept thinking this a very long time. Was the main temple compound here, was from the Song dynasty onwards chogen's visit is on the north side of Todai-ji Temple and travels 5 Ko thinking on Amida Buddha.

  • Admission to silver. Of course you're looking for 5 Ko thinking on Amida Buddha. Forget to put the opening book on the previous day, phoned on the day. Bathroom in my mode at the equinoctial you should be busy, we have accepted willingly. Meet the "Afro man (lol), and, after arrival, immediately showed to the main hall. As a first impression, and bigger than I was. Is your spending eons beyond imagination, that people kept thinking I was there. See Crown, zushi is he so is difficult, but still 10 minutes away presence. I thought it is a small temple, Buddha-like should visit once. Caution is required because the parking lot is a little not so much wide away in there (about 10), road access by car.

Buddha with an Orthodox impression travellers represented byoudouin hououdou constant morning made you say Amitabha Buddha, Buddha, standardization and generalization, but 5 Ko of Amida Nyorai is pretty heterogeneous unique in. According to the description of the temple, for the attainment of a 48 long speculation as a result like this hairstyle (AfroHair) said. Amitabha Buddha, as well as a hairstyle, facial features and shape on the other has no characteristics. First of all, the three-headed body's head. Square faces cheek Ella, close to the flat. Each has small eyes, nose, and mouth are gathered in the craniofacial center. And rather close to the baby. Further eyes and mouth are connected in a straight line, without leaving the cloth is hand, bear the mark phase (innzou), just feet from the Lotus position (kekkafuza). Hairstyle than most gay in doggy style and discreet at all, while, with gold-painted thick circle, giving off powerful glow. "Grains" of 5 Ko hospital in the name of the temple is, depends on the definition of the temple and "40-cube at the Angel once in three years came up the rock without hagoromo Kazuma (hitonade) and a tremendous time ', and 5 times that they will, In order to save the Earth this Buddha who came spent that. In China million, billion, trillion, Beijing-immeasurable number (10 ^ 68) until the book describing the number of decimal places, and the large number of small "dust Ko Ki (jinnkouki), but that 5 Ko"Ko"-shaped characters in the middle of the title of the book. In the end some day, yet never infinite, not notable long time that they will be able to say that. Unlike the infinity is finite, and enigmatic. In appearance after appearance of Amida Buddha crossed the long training is finally over, the change from a bodhisattva Buddha to be. Immediately ready for hairstyle and has hence, did not.

  • The reservation will allow visitors to Afro-Buddha. From using the description of the temple but especially the attraction of a Panda would feel less a historical weirdness. Yes, in this show, good? Also please!, of a staff said Buddha would own and think that history is poor?
