What to Expect

I would like to show you around temples closely associated with the introduction of Buddhism.

I recommend Horyu-ji Temple located in the northern part of Nara Prefecture.  It is the oldest wooden structure in the world.  The temple was designated as the first World Cultural Heritage site in Japan.  It was from here that Buddhism blossomed and spread throughout the land.
 And the five-story pagoda of Horyu-ji Temple is known for being the oldest earthquake-proof structure. Today, this structure's technique is employed by TOKYO SKY TREE, imagine that!

A giant papier-mache tiger will be waiting for you in front of the red gate at Chogosonshi-ji Temple. This temple is the head temple of Bishamonten who gave Prince Shotoku the idea of a punitive expedition to the Moribe-clan, an unbeliever of Buddhism. It is said that Prince Shotoku built this temple that enshrines Bishamonten in 594.

I hope you enjoy visiting these historical Buddhist temples.

Hello, I'm HIDEo YOSHIda. Please call me HIDEYOSHI, the same name as the famous shogun who built the Osaka Castle in 1585.

I was born in Kobe and worked in Osaka for nearly 40 years. I would like to introduce the Kansai region to you ,including Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama.

Kobe is one of the two largest ports in Japan, along with Yokohama. After the opening of the Port of Kobe in 1868, foreigners built their residences on the hillside of the Kitano-cho area, overlooking the ocean. Many of the foreign residences are now open to the public as museums, including the Weathercock House, with it's symbol weathercock on the triangle-shaped roof.
In Meriken Park, the red Port Tower (the city's landmark), creates a beautiful contrast against the white Kobe Marine Museum. The museum's design was inspired by the waves and sailing ships.

When you have a chance to visit Osaka, please join my tour. I'm sure you'll enjoy the interesting and historical, scenic spots. For example, Shin-Sekai is a downtown area with a strange mix of nostalgic atmosphere and contemporary energy. You can try local foods (kushikatsu, sushi, tempura) at a reasonable price. Billiken (a famous statue of the spirit of luck) will be waiting for you!!. Dotombori is a popular street with a lot of flashy signboards. Osaka is widely known as a "Kuidaore-no-machi", or literally "drinking and eating luxuriously to death." Osaka Castle was built by Toyotomi HIDEYOSHI in 1585. Oh, it's my residence, isn't it !

These days "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" area in USJ, or Universal Studios Japan, is also attracting more and more people.

I'll be looking forward to seeing you !! read more
