We are at the imposing Todaiji Temple in the Nara province of Kansai, which until 784 was the capital of Japan.
It was built in 752 as a leading temple and its influence on state affairs became so strong that in 784 the capital was moved to Nagoya and in 794 to Kyoto.
The main hall of the Daibutsuden Temple was considered to be the tallest wooden structure and houses one of the largest bronze statues of the Buddha, 16 meters high and weighing about 500 tons.
We watch the façade of the temple, the multitude of visitors and a deer familiar with people posing comfortably in front of the lens. The deer in Japan are considered to be messengers of the gods.
