The film looks at some of the most important temples in the city including Tofoku-ji temple with its famous Shichido-garan layout symbolising the human body. Maintaining temples for centuries, the film follows traditional carpenters as they carry out major repairs at Chion-in and thatch Kiyomizu-dera's main-hall with cypress bark using traditional roofing methods.
