Additional Information


Sanjusangen-do Temple, also known as the Hall of the Lotus King, boasts one of Japan's few long wooden buildings, its main hall stretching from north to south. Although the exterior is simple and austere, the interior is shockingly different. The temple is filled with Japanese National Treasures, including Buddhist statues and cultural relics, and it is especially famous for the impressive number of statues of the Thousand Armed Kannon. These statues vary in appearance, from differences in clothing and musical instruments to expressions and postures. The temple is also known for its archery competition which is held here every year.
