Chūson-ji (中尊寺?) is a Buddhist temple in Hiraizumi, Iwate Prefecture, Japan. It is the head temple of the Tendai sect in Tōhoku (northeastern Japan).
The Tendai sect claims that the temple was founded in 850 by Ennin, the third chief abbot of the sect,
but most scholars believe that Chūson-ji was founded by Fujiwara no Kiyohira in about 1100.
There is no archaeological or historical record of Buddhist activity in this area before 1100.
The Konjiki-dō (金色堂) or 'Golden Hall' is a mausoleum containing the mummified remains of the leaders of the Northern Fujiwara
(奥州藤原氏 Ōshū Fujiwara-shi) clan who ruled much of northern Japan in the 12th century

Dogo onsen

Quote:
Dōgo Onsen is one of the oldest onsen hot springs in Japan, with a history stretching back over 1,000 years. The springs are mentioned in the Man'yōshū (written c. 759), and according to legend Prince Shotoku (574–622) used to partake of the waters.

A little different, but the Japanese empire of the late 19th-early 20th centuries had a pretty distinctive style of its own...

Tokyo Station, 1914

Central bank offices, 1896



Kyoto National Museum, 1896



HSBC Museum, Nagasaki, ~1904



Japan is unusual in that the newer the traditional architecture gets the less clean-lined and modern it looks.

Indeed. Luckily there are loads of great
images on Flickr!


Nijō Castle

Kyoto

Construction of the castle began in 1601 on the orders
of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate.
All the feudal lords in Western Japan were ordered
to contribute to it, and by 1626, the castle was completed.
Despite Edo being the official capital of Japan,
the Nijō Castle would serve as the residence
for the Tokugawa Shoguns.

Hōryū-ji

Ikaruga, Nara Prefecture

The temple of Hōryū-ji is one of the oldest wooden structures in the world.
It was originally commissioned by Prince Shōtoku in 607,
and was dedicated to Yakushi Nyorai, the Buddha of healing.
The original temple burned down after being hit
by lightning in 670, but was reconstructed in about 711.
In the buildings that stand today, one can see influences
from the Three Kingdoms of Korea, as well as from
Eastern Han and Northern Wei of China.

Nikkō Tōshō-gū

Nikkō, Tochigi Prefecture

Nikkō Tōshō-gū is a shinto shrine, dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu,
the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate.
The shrine was initially built in 1617, when Ieyasu's son Hidetada reigned.
It was subsequently enlarged by the daimyō Tōdō Takatora,
a close companion of the late Ieyasu.
In the temple that he built, Ieyasu's remains are entombed.

Matsue Castle

Matsue, Shimane Prefecture

Matsue Castle, or at least the central tower, is one of the few
of its kind remaining in Japan which have not been
rebuilt and retain its original form. Construction of the castle
was carried out over a 5 year period by local daimyō
Horio Yoshiharu and finished in 1611.
Since it was built after the last great war of feudal Japan,
it never saw battle and was thus never destroyed.
The surrounded buildings however,
were dismantled in 1875, and rebuilt in the 1950s.

Daigo-ji

Fushimi-ku, Kyoto Prefecture

Daigo-ji is a Shingon Buddhist temple and was founded in the
early Heian period (9th century). The five-story pagoda here,
built in 951, is the oldest surviving building in Kyoto.
The emperor Daigo is also buried in the temple.
After having fallen ill and abdicated in 930, he entered
Buddhist priesthood here. Shortly thereafter though,
the ex-emperor died at the age of 46.
