S A N J Ū S A N G E N D Ō 三十三間堂
Rather than the exterior, the reason why you must visit this place if you're in Kyōto, is a hall containing 1001 human-sized statues of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, which each have a slightly different pose and face, and of other Buddhist figures with crystal eyes that seem to be staring right into your soul. It wasn't allowed to take pictures inside, but I'm pretty sure photos cannot translate the feeling of that place anyway. The atmosphere is just incredible, it's one of the most impressive things I've seen in Japan.
