1518: Byōdōin, Kyoto

A head-on view of one of the most famous temples in Kyoto: the reflection makes for an interesting puzzle. The building, which appears in the design on a 10-yen coin in this view, is the Amida Hall, more familiarly known as the Phoenix Hall, after the birds perched on top of the central roof.

Mark Schumacher has an interesting page on the phoenix, including closeups of the birds on roof of this temple.
