The Tōdai-ji is an important Buddhist temple in Nara, Japan. It houses the biggest Buddha statue (daibutsu) with a height of 15 meters and a weight of 452 tons. The temple dates back to the year 745 and was last rebuilt in 1708.

It is a UNESCO world heritage site that is especially beautiful in April during the cherry blossom. The area is also used for cultural events; in 1994 Bon Jovi and Bob Dylan were playing here. And there is another special thing: in one of the wooden columns there is a hole that is said to bring luck if you climb through. Have fun watching everybody trying…
