Zen temple build in a particular construction Jul 26, 2000
The Fukusaiji Zen Temple was founded in 1628, originally as a zen temple. During the dropping of the atomic bomb on the city of Nagasaki on august 9th, 1945, the temple was completely destroyed.

It was rebuild in its present particular shape, of a giant turtle with an 18 meter statue of Kannon, the Bodhisattva of compassion. In my opinion a strange construction of a temple, especially with the turtle shape building.

An entrance ticket costs 200 yen (around 2 euros or 2,50 US dollars), but at the time that we were there, we didn't go inside. We just walked around it.

If you're in the neighbourhood and you're interested in strange architecture, then you might want to stop by for a look. Otherwise, just avoid it.
