Kofuku-ji temple, one of the 8 UNESCO wold heritage sites, is famous by its crown jewel dry lacquer statue of Ashura.
This hugely popular statue will not be displayed until the end of 2017, due to the renovation of the Kofukuji National Treasure Hall which is usually placed.
But special exhibition is held at the lecture hall of Kofuku-ji temple.
Not only Ashura but with other masterpieces of sculpture displayed, this is a must see event.
