Japanese cypress building material for temples are laid out as a
carpenter chisels lumber for a Buddhist temple roof at a workshop of
Kongo Gumi, in a suburb of Osaka May 21, 2003. Spanning 40 generations
and surviving everything from feudal wars to the more recent collapse
of the nation's economic bubble, the first Kongo family construction
business built most of Shitennoji, one of Japan's first Buddhist
temples, and the company still serves as its "chief carpenter,"
handling repairs and construction of new buildings almost exclusively.
