Kairyuouji temple (海龍王寺) was constructed by the order of Empress Komyo in 731. Hokkeji temple is very close to this temple in Nara prefecture. This temple’s special treasure is a small 5 floors pagoda which is only 4.01 meter height (It is 2.85 meter except Kurin pagoda’s final) but it was very old that was made in early 8 century (Japan’s national treasure). The other one is 11-face Kannon in Kamakura period (13-14 century). I am very pleased this statue. It is prohibited to take a photo of this statue. If you want to see it, please go to the temple’s site.
