“Experience the timeless allure architecture”

Byodoin Temple, a remarkable example of Buddhist architecture, showcases the beauty of Pure Land design. Originally built as a countryside retreat villa in 998, it was later transformed into a temple by Michinaga's son, who commissioned the construction of the awe-inspiring Phoenix Hall. This iconic hall, nicknamed Hoodo, stands as a testament to the temple's resilience, having survived the test of time while other structures fell victim to fires and calamities. Visitors can embark on guided tours to explore the Phoenix Hall, home to a magnificent statue of the Amida Buddha.

Nestled underground, Byodoin's unique treasure house offers a captivating exhibition of the temple's most precious artifacts, including numerous important cultural properties and national treasures. This subterranean arrangement ensures that the focus remains on the breathtaking Phoenix Hall. Inside the treasure house, informative displays in multiple languages provide insights into the history and construction of Byodoin Temple.

With its rich heritage and architectural marvels, Byodoin Temple invites visitors to immerse themselves in the tranquil beauty of Pure Land Buddhism while marveling at the enduring legacy of the Phoenix Hall, a revered symbol featured on the Japanese ten yen coin.
