Looking at the city from Kiyomizudera in Kyoto, a buddhist temple and the biggest wood structure. Supposedly not a single nail holds the temple’s structure!
As I have said countless times, your life is not complete if you don’t go to Kyoto when in Japan ^^
this must have been quite the experience
I loved this place when I was in Japan. Kanazawa was my first favorite place(I love the countryside) but Kyoto would have to be my second favorite place!
You are also very right! Your life is not complete if you don’t go to Kyoto when in Japan ^^
My favorite place was Osaka (I arrived there — first love maybe? ^^) but Kyoto is as you say, an excellent second favorite place =)
If they didn’t use nails, what did they use? (bolts, screws, glue..)
I’ve been wondering the same thing… glue perhaps? ^^
I think the wood just… “fits” in, like LEGOs
Yah I defo need to go to Kyoto! My Japan life feels so incomplete ;(
How long do you recommend staying?
Three days if you hurry up and are on a budget should be more than enough I think — that’s how much I stayed I think and I was able to visits lots of temples.
Anyway, do go to Kyoto, your Japan is not complete without it!
I visited here as well on my trip to Japan in June 2009. It was great! Man it was hot walking up the hill to this temple!
Couldn’t agree more Hao, Kyoto is incredible, less than 6 months till i’m there again and i’m already counting the days! Sad right? :)
