|The Physical Object|
Temples (寺, tera) are the places of worship in Japanese Buddhism. Virtually every Japanese municipality has at least one temple, while large cultural centers like Kyoto have several hundred. Temples store and display sacred Buddhist objects. Some temples used to be monasteries, and some still function as such. March June 2. When the capital of Japan was named Kyoto in , Toji temple was founded as a state-sponsored institution in order to provide divine protection for the nation and its people.
Back in a man named Byron Preiss decided it would be a good idea to publish a treasure hunt. He spent a year or so traveling around the country, burying small ceramic boxes two feet underground. He wrote a few poems, and had a friend of his paint some images. Another usage for temples is derived from their own history: they often enshrine images of Buddha that have become national treasures (meaning they are protected by Japanese Law and recognized as important cultural asset) so people come to see them.
When traveling in Japan, temple visits can easily be the highlight of your trip. Their conspicuous and iconic presence in Japan’s heritage and landscape, and wide international recognition by cultural organizations, have gilded them as one of Japan’s outstanding treasures. The Kyoto area alone boasts more than 2, temples and shrines, many of which are designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites and national treasures. When it comes to gardens, Japan is equally famous for both its gorgeous landscape gardens and its rock gardens (also known as Zen gardens). So we can’t say this list is the definitive top 5.
