PL Peace tower, sakura, and Liz taking photo

PL, "Perfect Liberty", is an, um, interesting, religious group. The grounds of their HQ outside Osaka are quite pretty in the sakura season. This is my friend Liz getting a photo of the "Peace Tower" through the branches.

Pagoda of Unusual Size

This, at Kofukuji, Nara, is the second highest pagoda in Japan.

Pagodas evolved out of stupas, Indian Buddhist mounds that originated as burial sites for relics of the historical Buddha.
