Enough with the deer. This is Goju-No-To, a famous pagoda at Kofukuji temple in Nara.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Very interesting building. Is the contraption on top part of the original design or a camouflaged cell phone tower?

@vu@granby - Wolfgang: Thanks Wolfgang! No no, it's part of the original design...!

grant from kansas city, United States

very interesting place. that top part does seem oddly modern. good to know it's original.

@grant: Thanks Grant, I don't know if it's 'original' but it's certainly of typical traditional design.

Ken from United States
