Sanjusangendo Temple Reviews
たくさんの仏様が並んでいて、圧巻です。自分と同じ顔の仏さまを見つけられると、幸せになれるのだそうです。 more »There are a lot of Buddhas lined up, and it is a masterpiece. If they can find a Buddha with the same face as him, they will be happy.
主要是看这里的千手观音，有一千多个，还是很震撼的，可以去看看，只是除了观音之外就没什么看的了，不过京都博物馆就在对面可以一并参观。 more »Mainly to see here a thousand hands to see the sound, there are more than a thousand, or very shocked, can go to see, but in addition to guanyin, there is nothing to see, but the Kyoto Museum on the opposite side can be visited together.
