Propitious Occurence

    Newer Older

    Fresh from the sorrow of graduation, I went to Osaka, Nara and Kyoto for a few days.

    In Nara, surrounded by deer, sits the world's largest wooden building. Inside is an immense bronze Buddha. Built over a thousand years ago (and nearly bankrupting the nascent Japanese Nation), it is a startling monument to the power of faith.

    Buddhism was introduced to Japan by way of Korea, and on the day I was visiting, I shared the temple with a group of travelling buddhist monks from Korea. Their eyes were as wide as everyone else's, and they perhaps took more photos than most.

    Have a look at the other photos from my trip here.
