The Phoenix Hall of Byodo-in Buddhist temple was founded in 1052 and is said to be Japan’s most beautiful building. Although a very large building, one can unknowingly be schlepping around multiple replicas in their pocket on any given day because this building is featured on the back of the Japanese 10-yen coin. Byodo-in is located in Uji, a delightful little town to stroll around.
