The introduction of the overseas world's cultural and natural heritage is continued, famous place in Wakayama with my living there in this time "Koya-san"

Koya-san is the mountains in the Wakayama-ken northeast and a general term in the religious city in the mountains. As the study school where early Heian period (about 1200 years before) and Kukai (Kobodaishi) are Shingon Esoteric Buddhism, kaisou.


It was Koya-san Shingonshu, but a sect was being believed in widely in spite of a sect from the old days. The sacred place which represents the Japanese Buddhism as well as Hiei-zan. 


There are no piles of the name as "Koya-san", but there are eight mountains in Koya-san, and a religious city is formed by a circled basin in its Houhou. An altitude in a basin is 800 m-about 900 m, and flat land spreads relatively over eastern and western 6km and northern and southern 3km.


Kumano and Yoshino were registered with world-class cultural property as well as Omine in 2004.

Konpon-Daito where the next is in the temple on the famous platform


Daito(Big-Tower) where one in the temple on the platform catches eye remarkably by vivid vermilion. It's called Konpon-Daito at a symbolic building as a foundation school of the Shingon Esoteric Buddhism made over Two generation of Kobodaishi and Shingon Esoteric Buddhism. It's said to be a Japan's first one as a building of the two-storied pagoda style. When kongokai four Buddha and eight ancestor image from which esoteric Buddhism was introduced to 16 pillars in the four corners of sixteen big bodhisattva and a wall make the taikurakai Dainichinyorai the center in the interior, and are drawn by entourage, it's solid Mandala in the hall. It was tanned with repeated thunderbolts many times, every time, the present tower was reconstructed and was reconstructed in 1934. The height is 48m.


An ascetic monk sacrifices a prayer every day.


The building and the "Sai-To/west tower" where the next is old.


The west tower built in 887 with Kobodaishi's will. 
 A tower which exists was reconstructed and is height 27.27m in 1834 .


I wrote ascetic monk's prayer first, but Koyasan University which brings a priest up is here here.
Students here go around a temple in this temple every day and sacrifice a prayer.


When I visited several times, there weren't many foreigner tourists yet, either, and it could be satisfied with child's cathedral comfortably, it seems crowded with a foreigner tourist now.


It was being visited while following behind the ascetic monks.

Were they this and an To-to/East Tower?


How was an impression in the tower with the different size and color respectively?


Pictures are Me and 10 years before.
