The Byodoin restoration is complete, and I have to say: wow!

For reference, here is what it looked like the last time I was there:



Can't wait to get back there to see it again.

Oh, wow. Geez. I saw an article about it this morning, but didn't give it much thought... Now, I'm doing a double-take, as I realize that, yes, the fully-painted red Byodoin I saw was the replica in Hawaii, and that, indeed, the last time I saw the real one it was all brown and desperately in need of a new paint job. How long had it been?

That is impressive. It's hard to believe it's the same building.
