Shinyakushiji Temple, Nara
Visit the site of one of Japan's oldest wooden buildings, Shinyakushiji Temple, founded in 747 AD by Empress Komyo for her ill husband, Emperor Shomu. You'll find yourself in a complex featuring two gates and a hall, which dates back to the 12th or 13th century, as well as Hon-dor, an 8th-century building, which now serves as the main hall of the area. The small structure has white washed walls and a rather slanted roof. Go inside to find a 191.5 cm (75 in) statue of Yakushi Nyori almost filling up the entire room, with his 'twelve heavenly generals' surrounding him. In the past, the generals have featured on the 500 yen stamp. Add Shinyakushiji Temple and other attractions to your Nara trip itinerary using our Nara trip itinerary builder site .

新が付いていたため70になるまで行かなかつたが、娘の十二神将の写仏により、 重い腰を上げ尋ねると、びっくり。十二神将の迫力ある姿に見応え充分、なんで今まで訪ねなかつたんだろうと反省と娘に感謝。又、行きます。 more »I didn't go until I was 70 because of the new one, but i was surprised when I raised my heavy waist and asked for a picture of my daughter, the twelve gods. It is enough to meet the powerful appearance of the 12-god general, and it is thanks to reflection and the daughter why it might not visit up to now. I'll go again.
从春日大社这里有一条路可以穿过春日山原始林（正好也是古都奈良文化遗产之一），走过一些居民区后抵达新药师寺。新药师寺是公元747年，光明皇后为了祈祷圣武天皇病愈而建立的。 门票为成人600日元。新药师寺很小，看点就是本堂里的药师如来坐像和十二神将立像，摆放和灯光效果极具美感。这些十二神将还是每个生肖年的守护神将，有兴趣和时间的同学可以考虑来看一下。 more »From the Spring Day Society here is a road through the original forest of the Spring Festival Mountains (which also happens to be one of the cultural heritage of the ancient capital Nara), walking through some residential areas and arriving at the New Pharmacist Temple. The Temple of the New Pharmacist was established in 747 A.D. by the Queen of Light to pray for the death of Emperor Sanwu. Tickets are 600 yen for adults. The new pharmacist temple is very small, the point of view is that the pharmacistin in this hall such as sitting portrait and twelve gods will stand portrait, placement and lighting effect is very beautiful. These twelve gods will also be the patron saint of every zodiac year, interested and time students can consider to look at.
