The Ohiroma Room (大広間) of Kongōbu-ji temple (金剛峯寺) on Mount Kōya (高野山) in Wakayama-ken (和歌山県), Japan. When I visited here a commemoration ceremony was held, celebrating the 1200th year of the passing away of Kōbō-Daishi (弘法大師), founder of the Shingon school of Buddhism. The crane motifs on the sliding doors of this room are painted by Kanō Tan'yū (狩野 探幽, 4 March 1602 – 4 November 1674).
The majestic Konpon Daitō (根本大塔) Pagoda part of the Danjo Garan (壇上伽藍) complex on Mount Kōya (高野山) in Wakayama-ken (和歌山県), Japan. This pagoda is the largest building on Kōyasan and originally constructed in 876. It took 40 years to build and stands 48. meters high. Although it was destroyed several times it has always been rebuilt. The present structure dates back to 1937.
