Japan 10 Yen {9S} 5L FEATURING front: Phoenix Hall of Byōdō-in, a Buddhist temple in Uji, Kyoto prefecture This temple was originally built in 998 in the Heian period as a rural villa of high-ranking courtier Minamoto no Shigenobu, Minister of the Left. The villa was made into a Buddhist temple by Fujiwara no Yorimichi in 1052. The most famous building in the temple is the Phoenix Hall (鳳凰堂 Hōō-dō) or the Amida Hall, constructed in 1053. It is the only remaining original building, surrounded by a scenic pond; additional buildings making up the compound were burnt down during a civil war in 1336. The main building in Byōdō-in, the Phoenix Hall consists of a central hall, flanked by twin wing corridors on both sides of the central hall, and a tail corridor. The central hall houses an image of Amida Buddha. The roof of the hall displays statues of the Chinese phoenix, called hōō in Japanese. • quantity 1 • polished Bronze coin • diameter: 23.5 mm • weight: 4.5 g CHOOSE FROM DROP DOWN MENU {2.4 mm thick cords} • 22" black cotton necklace with lobster clasp • 24” brass ball chain {lightweight 5 g} • 2-1/2" brass snake keychain with snap end {see last photo}  • no chain or cord message me if you need a shorter length black necklace  facebook.com/coinedJewelry instagram.com/coinedJewelry twitter.com/coinedJewelry pinterest.com/coinedJewelry tumblr.com/blog/coinedJewelry
