Built in 1164 by order of Emperor Go-Shirakawa, the Rengeō-in, or Hall of the Lotus King, is more commonly known as the Sanjūsangen-dō, or Hall of Thirty-Three Bays. It contains one thousand statues of Kannon, each unique, carved from cypress wood and gilded, dating from the 12th and 13th centuries. It also has this changing table in the corner of the gift shop.
