Going though the Wood of Kasuga, I went in Todaiji Temple area.
Todaiji temple was build in A.D.745 by the emperor Syomu and it's the biggest wooden architecture in the world. The huge Buddha(14.7m in height) is sitting inside。
The Imperial Household Agency keeps many treasures in the storehouses that's called Syosoin in Todaiji temple site. The treasures include paintings, calligraphies, carpentries, gold works, lacquer works, swords, potteries, glass works, musical instruments, masks etc. ancient arts. Nara is said the terminal of the Silk Road. So the treasures brought from the Silk Road are also included. A Japanese lute has mother-of-pearl work or a sword red jewels are embedded are very beautiful.
I saw a big ginkgo tree near Syosoin.
