      • Rengeoin Sanjusangendo

        Sanjusangendo known as the "Hall of 33 Bays." The original temple was built in around 1164 and survived only about a hundred years. What you see today is a reconstruction which is still very old as it dates from the thirteenth century.

        Its centrepiece is a ornate wood statue of the seated Kannon Bodhisattva. 3.3 m (11 f0 high, with 11 faces on the crown of its head and 40 arms (extravagantly known as "a thousand arms") wielding bells, wheels, and lotus flowers.

        However Sanjusangendo's main wonder is its legion of 1.000 gilded Kannon images flanking the central Buddha. The identical statues were carved by the 13th-century masters Kokei, Unkei. and Tankei, with 70 assistants.

Higashiyama in a dramatic cascade of thatched and tiled roofs. However, most of what we see today is actually a 17th-century reconstruction of the original 8th-century structure.

        With its numerous buildings set within extensive grounds Kiyomizu’s main attraction is the hondo (main hall). This elevated structure’s projecting wooden terrace is supported by a vast arrangement of 139 massive interlocking beams.

        Across on the mountainside is another terrace on which imperial courtiers and dignitaries would sit, while enjoying dance performance and music recitals on the hondo’s broad terrace.

        • Truly a beautiful museum with a stunning first exhibit when we were there yesterday. The third and fourth floor were unfortunately closed for renovations (?) at the time however our visit was still fantastic and I would highly recommend if you have time. Entry was 520 for an adult ticket if I recall and we spent 2 hours in the building to view the first two floors which was a perfect amount of time.
        • Not bad but there's not that much on display and over half of it is not that interesting. Good building but very dark. The outside architecture is much better than the inside. The old one is just an oddity that is fun to see. Currently under renovation though. So you can't go in. You'd think the museum would have a lot more to show and some much more interesting items too. So a bit disappointing.
        • The Kyoto National Museum was a great place to read about some of the history of Kyoto. I would recommend going here even though my person experience was slightly more lame than you'd expect with one of the major halls closed for renovation. Even still, the rest of the museum was great to walk through.
        • Range collection of Japan history, from statue, kimono, toys, painting, and old literature. The main building architecture also awsome. Nice museum.
        • This picturesque museum offers visitors a stark juxtaposition upon entry as the old museum meets the new contemporary structure; a marvel of modern architecture, this building is breathtaking in design and well worth the visit. Inside is a vast array of ancient ceramics, paintings, garments, scrolls and many other artefacts. If you’re lucky, you may meet Torarin, the Museum’s character mascot!
