This holy building was founded in 1164 and is 390 feet long. Inside are 1,001 Buddhas (the largest is in the center), and a visit is impressive and quite moving. It’s just down the road from the Hyatt Regency and is fabulous. Outside you can still see where arrows pierced the walls during the yearly contest when ancient warriors would try to shoot their arrows the entire length of the hall.
