The next day, Michele and I decided to visit the Todaiji (founded in 745) where the enormous Buddha resides.  It’s not as large as the Daibutsu in Kamakura, but certainly, just as impressive, as you can see.

The Daibutsu-den (The Great Buddha Hall)

The incense burner...with flutist!

eyes that see nirvana and all that is
