Credits and Acknowledgments:

A number of models on these pages, those associated with Naniwa-no-miya, were created from scale plans prepared by Obayashi Corp. When constructing the models, I have been as faithful as possible to their plans and as such the models are accurate to a very high degree. In addition to this, I have incorporated information from visits to ancient temples around the Kansai region of Japan.

Additionally, I would like to thank the people at the Osaka City Cultural Properties Association (OCCPA) for their assistance and support in preparing these models, and whose excavations over the last several decades has been the ultimate source of information for the plans prepared by Obayashi and thus the models on these pages. Specifically, I would like to thank Katsuyuki Okamura for his advice and friendship.

Models on these pages were created with Spazz3D
