This is a site not to be missed if you are in the area of Kyoto or Nara. It is an amazingly large wooden structure (we were told that it is the world's largest wooden building) with what is currently the largest Buddha in the world. The statue represents the Virocana Buddha, and is 49 feet tall. The history of the temple is fabulous, and I would recommend getting a tour guide so as not to miss out on the details.
