Buyeo is located one and a half hours away from Seould to the south.  It was an old capital of the county in 7th century. They believed Buddhism in those days. Japan imported Buddhism via Korea in 538 AD.

The building methods used for the old temples and pagoda are very unique and similar to the Japanese oldest temple in Nara. I could tell the roots of Japanese culture must be in this country.

The colorful lanterns are the decorations to celebrate the Buddha’s birthday.
