Shot at Byodo-In, a Buddhist temple in Uji, Kyoto. The wooden architecture in the photo is the Phoenix Hall completed in 1053. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a part of the 'Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto'. It was familiar architecture to those who lived in Japan.

Even though people have never visited here, people have seen the architectures. The phoenix which is stationed on the roof is depicted on 10,000-yen note and the hall itself was depicted on 10-yen coin.
