The Narita-san Shinsho-ji Temple attracts some 10 million visitors annually. It is one of the main centers of the Buddhist Shingon sect in Japan and has several branches throughout Kanto.
The temple was founded in 940. The legend has it that a Goma rite dedicated to the image of Fudomyoo, which had originally been enshrined at Takaosan Jingoji Temple in Kyoto, helped to miraculously suppress a revolt against Emperor Suzaku. An oracle proclaimed that the image, which had been transported from Kyoto to Narita, should stay where it was to relieve the locals from suffering. Emperor Suzaku then ordered the creation of the Narita-san temple to enshrine the Fudomyoo image.
The 58m high Great Padgoda of Peace was erected in prayer for world peace.

это фото явно недооценено. Очень качественно и познавательно. Только вот рамочка серая как-то не очень, ну да бог с ней. Резкость , цвета - отличные.
Верхушка пагоды похожа на антенну.))) космос слушают?
