Japanese traditional buildings are made of wood. So, they have been rebuilt some times, and kept their forms for several centuries. :)

yes, i studied abroad in Hikone for 8 months back in 2005/06. In Kyoto, I went to Fushimi Inari Taisha, Kinkakuji, and part of the shopping district. ^w^ I miss Japan so much!

Whoops, I talked to you about ひこにゃん [link] before, didn't I? ^^;

How was Fushimi Inari? Did you climb a mountain which was at the back of a main area of Fishimi Inari? I think it's a very mysterious place. When I walked on a path of huge numbers of torii, I felt like... I strayed into a parallel universe. :D

Someday, you must come to Japan again! :)
