Seiganto temple and Nachi falls - 2016 pieces

Near the southern tip of the Kii peninsula below Kyoto, this pagoda, just part of the temple complex, enjoys a commanding view of the impressive Nachi falls. Although the falls are actually across a valley, a suitable viewpoint brings them into the same picture.

This is a very tasteful photograph, and the touches of mist will probably make the large area of forest and cliffs slightly easier rather than harder.

Tōshōgu, Nikko - 2016 pieces

This spectacular entrance, Yômeimon, is the central feature of this World Heritage site in Nikkô (Tochigi). The whole site is a Shinto shrine (Tôshôgu) built in the early 1600s to honour Tokugawa Ieyasu, the very first Shogun of the Tokugawa era. Since he was the most powerful man in Japan at the time, perhaps it is not so surprising that for a Shinto building this is unusually ornate.

Hônen-in (Mizuno) - 1000 pieces

This temple was built in the Edo period (roughly 1600-1850) to honour Hônen, who was a much earlier Buddhist teacher. This is the central court, the "yard" of the temple head (not quite literally a yard, but hôjô, a square of side ten Japanese feet); the bridge over the pond symbolises the interval between "this world" and "the other world". The rooms we see feature some spectacular screen paintings, and are sometimes used as a venue for concerts.

What does the name mean?
hô
law
nen

in
temple

Sorry: the gloss is rather mysterious, but after all, it is a personal name.

Born in Kyoto in 1941, Mizuno Katsuhiko earned a degree in literature from Doshisha University in 1964. Since 1969 he has worked as a freelance photographer, in a lifelong quest to capture the essence of Japanese tradition in his native city, and resulting in publication of some one hundred books of his photographs.

Kamigamo Shrine - 300 pieces

This is one of two associated Shinto shrines on the Kamo river in northern Kyoto, its name meaning "Upper Kamo shrine" — the other is Shimogamo ("Lower Kamo"). The two have a very long history, going back to the Heian period (c. AD 800), but as is the tradition the structures themselves are maintained and rebuilt as necessary. This is the ornate main gate (rōmon), seen through the spring foliage.

One of the oldest shrines in Japan, it is now a World Heritage site.
