Nagasaki Meiji 1900s Unknown
Daionji, a Buddhist temple of the Jodo Sect in Nagasaki with an Irimoya-style roof and Chinese-style roof decorations. The monk Denyo built Daionji on a Catholic site destroyed in 1620. In 1638, the temple was moved to the site in this image. The building in the photo was built in 1832. Daionji was severely damaged by the Atomic Bombing of August, 1945 (Showa 20). In 1962, a reinforced concrete building of the same size was built. Interestingly, the cycad visible on the left, has survived to this day.
