Greetings Nadia, Thanks for visiting and commenting. The buildings on the temple grounds weather and have to be replaced after time. This is one of the newest restorations at the temple. It was very beautifully done. The building itself was a work of art.

I like these traditional temples very much!

Greetings Alfred, Thanks for visiting Japan and commenting. I am glad you like this style. This temple building looked to be brand new. There was not a flaw to be seen or any traces of weathering. It was very beautiful. I would wager it was built completely with hand tools, in the old style.
