Zaodo Inside of Zaodo

Here is another national treasure dedicated to Japanese Buddhism, named Zaodo. Zaodo is the second largest wooden structure after Todaiji in Japan. Zaodo is the main hall of Kimpusenji temple, which is the head of temple of one of the Japanese Buddhism in Mt. Yoshino. Kimpusenji was traditionally a junction in a series of stops on pilgrimage routes and so now as well.

Come and feel the traditional Japanese atmosphere quietly at the temple. There are much fewer people than Todaiji.
