- Prince Shotoku is my favorite hero of Japanese histroy. It's amazing that he conducted to build such wonderful buildings more than 1300 years ago. (USA)

- Bus available but best to go by car/taxi. Take your food and drink. My favorite wooden structure in Japan is the 5-story pagoda at Horyuji. (USA)
