Review of Buddhist Art Library

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/04/03 明治35年の建物で国の重要文化財
国立博物館に所属する建物で現在は仏教美術資料センターの名称になっていますが、文化財としての名称は旧奈良県物産陳列所で国の重要文化財に指定されている建物です。竣工は明治35年。外観を眺めるだけでも、ちょうど咲いた桜がとてもきれいでした。

「旧奈良県物産陳列所」の建物が奈良国立博物館の研究施設として使われているそうです。外構の外から外観のみ見ることができましたがカッコイイ建物でした。

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
