I posted about Kiyomizudera here before. I was doing some follow-up reading and came across a site which covers Asian architecture. I was a bit surprised that the entry on Kiyomizudera doesn't show much of what I consider to be one of the most prominent features of that temple. Then I looked at the page for Katsura Rikyu and also found it did not show what I consider to be the finer points of the place.
I suppose we all see what we want to see and this points out that one shouldn't be surprised that others don't see things in quite the same way.
Anyway, the site is a good place to learn a bit about Asian architecture. Almost makes me want to dig up my old copy of Sir Banister Fletcher's "History of Architecture" so I can post his quote on the "Non-Historical" styles for all to laugh at.
