2016: Nara, former capital

2010 sees the celebration of the 1300th anniversary of the Japanese capital moving to Heijō-kyō, or modern Nara. This is Yakushi-ji, one of the historical temples of Nara — some of the buildings are modern reconstructions, but because of the tradition regular rebuilding and repair undergone by wooden temple buildings of Japan, and with the decline in the importance of Nara after the capital moved to Kyoto, many historical details are lost in the mists of time.
