Constructed shortly after Buddhism came to Japan, this temple houses the nation's oldest great Buddha statue, dating to the year 609. Though only a few buildings remain of the once-sprawling complex, the Korean and mainland-influenced structures and sculptures at this venerable worship site offer visitors a remarkable window into the Japanese Buddhism's earliest days.
