This temple is to the north of the Todaiji Temple great image of buddha lord and Shousou-in, and is located in the point where it was finished to climb the climb slope that is called a Nara slope.
The daffodil flower was just full-bloomed at this season though this temple was called an alias cosmos temple. Moreover, I'm recalled to have chatted with the person of the photographer in local where it keeps taking the buddhist image that queues up here in the garden in the morning.
Hannya-ji burnt down at the Heian era and it became the dilapidated temple just like for a while afterwards though Hannya-ji Temple was created in the Asuka age. The revival was advanced when entering Kamakura Period. Thirteen stony tower that was able to be called the symbol of the temple was built with the monk called "ryoue", and completed by years of about 1253. Afterwards, the principal image and the cathedral were revived in monk called "eison" of Saidai-ji. He is known as a founder of a religion of head temple of "Singon Ritusyu" sect in a Japanese Buddhism, and having held social workers of the poor and the disease person relief, etc. It prospered as study temple "Hannya-kyo".
When thinking about a religious culture of Japan, one has the Buddhism of the outpatient brought in by the monk of going abroad to study who goes over to India, China and Korea. It is the other, and there is old Japan Shintoism with a deep relations with the emperor ,for example, the Shinto shrine etc. They coexist while keeping balance of power in the age and have arrived now. The Christianity enters the Meiji era stepped forward to the modernization and has been released though the policy of the prohibition of propagation caught Tokugawa warrior regime that continued for 300 years by the reason why the national constitution is broken.

this rural temple is well captured with the harsh light of the day to make the scene a bit hazed.A good and informative note about the religious in Japan.
