Flying Bird And Perching Bird In Byodo-In

Shot at Byodo-In, a Buddhist temple in Uji, Kyoto Tetsu Ozawa

The bird was flying around above the hall

The Phoenix Hall built in 1053 stood under the spreading sky. It was dedicated to Amitābha and listed on one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The statue of the phoenix perched on the top of its roof. It spread its wings and looked like almost starting to fly. I watched the statue with an abstracted air. Then a bird came flying this way. And it started to swivel above the hall. I thought it came here to ask the phoenix for flying together.
