Kyoto #27: 平等院鳳凰堂【Byodo-In】

What a wonderful reflecting world…
The cantral hall that is the focus of the Ho-oh-doh is 14.2 meters across its face and 11.8 meters along the side. On the top of the tile roof, a pair of phoenixes are affixed, in addition, the four corners of the roof of the central hall curve up sharply, giving the structure as a whole and air of imminent motion.


The whole picture is reflected on the water’s surface!! This is one of the famous insta-worthy spots there!! Let’s try it !!!

What a great museum…
In addition to main garden and hall, people can enjoy to get to know more details at Byodo-In Museum. We are not allowed to take any photos but we can not only see lots of historical things but also learn about the history of Byodo-In. We don’t need to pay extra money to get into it!!

Don’t miss even small things…
Here, Jodo-In Temple is the head of Byodo-in Temple and is said to have been founded in the latter half of the 15th century to restore Byodo-in Temple. There is an interesting thing, Kuze-Funanori-Kan’non, which is enshrined by travelers and families who pray for the safety of travel. 




This time, we have introduced Byodo-In in Kyoto. When you come to Kyoto, you should visit there and see its beauty and magnificence. You can experience awesome atmosphere and nature there.
