Please note that it's not meant to be an exhaustive overview of Hieizan and its glorious legacy but just a sneak preview from my personal lenses. There's so much more about each and every site the...

Had I known that, I would definitely go there in my visit a few days ago. Hieizan was indeed a gorgeous place. When I visited the Konpo...

Re: [5min video] Hieizan , Enryakuji temple , Mt Hiei

Thanks for the video and I have seen it some time back. Have you visited Hieizan (比叡山)? My first unforgettable visit was in early Autumn of 2014 but it was a short one that only managed to cover one of the three part sites: the popular Tōdō (東塔, East Stūpa / Pagoda / Tower). At that time, I used the...

For the First Time, Researchers Eliminated HIV From the Genomes of Living Animals

There’s no question that powerful anti-HIV medications can do a fairly good job of keeping the virus under control. Used properly, these anti-retroviral drugs (ARVs) can suppress HIV enough to keep it at levels so low they’re undetectable in the blood, which drastically lowers the chance of spreadi...
