Photography 101: Architecture

The first image was taken in the early fall a few years ago while the other two photos were taken a few days before spring time 8 months ago.

NARITA-SAN SHINSHOJI TEMPLE Narita-san (成田山 "Narita mountain") Shinshō-ji (新勝寺 "New victory temple") is a Shingon Buddhist temple located in central Narita, Chiba, Japan. It was founded in 940 by Kanchō Daisōjō, a disciple of Kōbō Daishi. It is a lead temple in the Chisan branch (Chisan-ha 智山派) of New Shingon (Shingi Shingon 新義真言宗), includes a large complex of buildings and grounds, and is one of the best-known temples in the Kantō region. It is dedicated to Fudō myōō ("Unmovable Wisdom King", known as Ācala in Sanskrit), who is usually depicted holding a sword and rope and surrounded by flames. Often called a fire god, he is associated with fire rituals. (Wikipedia)

NARITA-SAN DAITO  A daito or large pagoda daitō is the only type of tahōtō (many-jewelled pagoda) to retain the original structure with a row of pillars or a wall separating the corridor (hisashi) from the core of the structure, abolished in smaller pagodas. Daitō used to be common but, of all those ever built, only a few are still extant. (Wikipedia)

      1. I have to be honest. I’ve forgotten about this. Ooops! But now that I’ve known about it again, I am totally going there. 😀 By the way, I hope I find a way to make mine different, but I can’t promise not to steal the way you photograph it. Ahihihi 🙂
