Byodoin temple

This is Byodoin temple in Uji.

My friend Enchi took these pictures.

It has a Ho-o-do hall whose roof has hoo(phoenix) figures.

The statue of Amida Nyorai which is a work of Jocho is inside it.

Recently it was renovated. 

The image on the Japanese 10 yen coin is Byodo-in Temple’s Ho-o-do hall.

I think it is a beautiful place.

  1. This brings back good memories of our visit to Uji! We had a wonderful english speaking guide who showed us the town, and helped us understand so many Japanese customs.
