Not many tourists go there so that you can enjoy the peaceful time. The whole ticket is ¥1500 for 3 parts visit, strongly recommended. You can see the oldest building in the west of the temple, including the main hall for Buddha and the 5 storey tower. Better sit down and feel the peaceful. There is the other memorial hall in the east side of the temple. #GiveThanks

As the oldest surviving Buddhist temple in Japan, the Horyuji Temple in Nara is the first World Heritage Site to be recognized by UNESCO in Japan. There are more than 3,000 cultural relics in the temple that are only defined as national treasures and important cultural property. The Falun Temple was founded in 607 AD by Prince Shengde. It was originally introduced to Japan at the beginning of Buddhism, so the name of the temple contains the meaning of the Dharma. Falung Temple is the oldest wooden building in the world, but its value is not in the old, but in the ancient Japanese architectural techniques and wisdom that have been tempered by years. Whether it is the Dream Hall of the Eastern Academy or the Zhongmen, Jintang and Wuzhong Pagodas of the West Courtyard, although the Tang Dynasty architecture is emulated, now in China, the same period of architecture has withered as the river has passed away, and the preciousness of the Falun Temple is even more precious. . In addition to the architecture, several statues of Sakyamuni built by Prince Shengde in Jintang are even rare treasures, which laid the status of the Horyu Temple in Buddhism.
