Caption

The Five Story Tower at Horyu-Ji Temple in Nara: National Treasure – Horyu-Ji temple was established by Shotoku-Taishi (Prince Shotoku). The importance of this temple is to store not only the excellent historical articles of Asuka era. But other materials telling the history later. It is really one of the greatest storage of the treasures of art of the eras. The five storty tower is one of the treasures and the 18 ft. sq. and 105 ft. high tower is magnificent and [illegible] enough to make people feel it being immortal.
