      • The Fujiwara Clans Shrine Tanzan Jinja!

        Situated deep in the mountains is of one Japan's and Nara's oldest shrines. Founded in the eight century and built by the monk Jo'e (643 – 666). Jo'e was the oldest son of Fujiwara no Kamatari (614 – 669), founder of the Fujiwara clan and the seat of the Fujiwara clan. It is a little difficult to reach but when you do there is fantastic scenery to enjoy. Some of its pavilions are very old and bear the mark of old age. There are two entrances; one a steep stairway of 140 steps to a Shinto shrine, famous for its splendid view during the momiji season. The small balcony of this shrine is lined with lanterns and maple trees all around. The other entrance is less spectacular as far as steps are concerned, but the two pavilions that are at its entrance are well worth the view. In between these two buildings is a small waterfall that adds to the serenity of the place. Next to these pavilions is a small open area flanked by two more pavilions, one of which has a memorial statue to xxxxxx and the other is a small museum with different portraits of xxxxxx. At the end of this small open area you will find some steps leading up to another pavilion and what impressed me the most was the view of the majestic 13 story pagoda in bright red vermillion, flanked on all sides by maple trees. After climbing the steps and turning to the right there are more steps leading up to the main Shinto shrine. This is where the famous balcony with the lanterns is. Inside the hall is a small museum, a fairly large tatami room with artefacts from a bygone era. It's also a comfy place to take a rest and take in the quietness of the mountain and listen to the birds and the sounds of the forest.

          • Katsura

            Position Piece 2: As part of our elaborated window study I chose to examine in further detail the Katsura in Kyoto. I quickly reliased that it was the essence of the sliding shoji screen that intrigued me most about this building and so I produced a scale model of one module consisting, 2 tatami mats, 1 screen and one timber wall panel. Not wall, not window and not door but at the same time all three the shoji screen creates a moveable plane based on the tatami proportion. The ability to move the screen and the ensuing view behind suggests a constant state of transcience and emphemerality that is in keeping with the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi. The translucent medium of paper, as opposed to transparent glass, softens the light entering the space producing a white glow. This paper screen can be understood in a filmic sense in the way in which it allows shadows and shillouettes to be projected onto it. As a film maker the geometries of the screen and timber framing system allow for a multitude of frame within frame shots - an ideal example of which cn be seen in Yasujiro Ozu's 1953 film "Tokyo Story". In the style of Ozu I have sought to balance my shots and have experimented with his tatami framing method - placing the camera closer to the ground so that the focus is at the eye level of a person sitting on a tatmi mat.

                      In 1604, after Toyotomi Hideyoshi’s invasion of Korea and China ended, the Korean side sent Shoun Daishi (Sa Myung Dang) to Japan to uncover Japanese postwar intentions. He stayed at this temple until he met Tokugawa Ieyasu at Fushimi castle in the spring of the following year. Many Japanese Buddhist monks and scholars visited him and deepened their friendship by communicating with him through writing and exchanging Chinese poems. After determining that Ieyasu had no belligerent intentions in the third month of the following year, diplomatic relations between the two countries were resumed two years later.
