Kyoto (Higashi-Honganji)

Filed under: Domestic, Kansai, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 12:23 am

Higashi Honganji (東本願寺) is a very large Buddhist temple, located just a short walk away from Kyoto station, the main train station and portal into the city.

blah blah blah

The main building under repairs, they were using this smaller, but still quite large, building to hold services

la de da

The main building. Shrouded for the repairs. Allegedly, this is one of the largest wooden buildings in the world. Although, in a city susceptible to fires, it's burnt down quite a few times.
