Japan . Tokyo . Sky Tree . 日本 . 東京スカイツリ

Tokyo Skytree (東京スカイツリー Tōkyō Sukaitsurī) is a broadcasting, restaurant, and observation tower in Sumida, Tokyo, Japan. It became the tallest structure in Japan in 2010 and reached its full height of 634.0 metres (2,080 ft) in March 2011, making it the tallest tower in the world, displacing the Canton Tower, and the second tallest structure in the world after the Burj Khalifa (829.8 m/2,722 ft).
The tower is the primary television and radio broadcast site for the Kantō region; the older Tokyo Tower no longer gives complete digital terrestrial television broadcasting coverage because it is surrounded by high-rise buildings. Skytree was completed on Leap Day, 29 February 2012, with the tower opening to the public on 22 May 2012. The tower is the centrepiece of a large commercial development funded by Tobu Railway and a group of six terrestrial broadcasters headed by NHK. Trains stop at the adjacent Tokyo Skytree Station and nearby Oshiage Station. The complex is 7 km (4.3 mi) north-east of Tokyo Station.

Japan . Kyoto . Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple . 愛宕念仏寺
The temple, originally called Otagi-ji Temple, was first built in the Otagi District (The central part of present-day Kyoto) by order of Emperor Shotoku in the latter half of the 8th century.
 At the beginning of the Heian period (794-1192), the temple building was washed away when the Kamo River flooded. The temple was reestablished by Senkan Naigu (918-984), a priest 
of the Tendai sect, and became a branch of Enryakuji, the Tendai temple complex on Mt. Hiei.
 Over a period of three years beginning in 1922, the temple was transfered to its present location in the Saga District, in order to preserve it.
 The temple has a wonderful array of 1,200 carved stone figures of Rakan (disciples of Shaka, the founder of Buddhism) made by people from various parts of the country from 1981 to 
1991 for the reconstruction of the temple.

Japan . Kyoto . Adashino.Nenbutsu-ji.Temple
Adashino Nenbutsu-ji (化野念仏寺 Adashino Nenbutsuji) is a Buddhist temple in Ukyo-ku, Kyoto, Japan. In 811 Kūkai is said to have founded a temple, then Honen altered it to the present Nenbutsuji. Situated high on a hill overlooking the city from the northwest, it sits in an area where since the Heian period people abandoned the bodies of the dead, exposing them to the wind and rain. Now, some eight thousand Buddhist statuettes, which had been scattered around Adashino then collected about 1903, memorialize the souls of the dead. During its well-known 'sento kuyo', a ceremony dedicated to the spirits of the dead, about ten thousand stone statues are lit up with candles.
