Do you know about Japanese and religion?

In Japan biggest religion is Buddhism.
Next is Shinto.


I am not talk about religion itself today.
I just want you to introduce Japanese great historical statue,art or architecture.

Japan have really interesting history.
Buddism is imported in 6th century from Korea.

And had few conflict with Shinto which is Japanese native religion.
Well Buddhism won these conflict.

Sometimes Buddhism and Shinto blended together and make it beautiful arts.

I really love old Japanese things :-)
