Hi Macky =O))

Some days ago, you talked about this palace, but I didn't realise about the two birds of the beautiful roof. By the way, are they phoenix or Tsurus, or are the same?.

A warm greeting =O))

The bird is not Tsuru but phoenix. The phoenix was thought to be very noble bird and was often used for ornament of temple. By the way, on the top of Kinkakuji, Golden Pavillion, is a decoration of the phoenix.

For me, Tsuru reminds me of Origani:-))

have a nice weekend
