About the Godai
As in many ancient cultures, Japanese philosophers once believed that the world was made up of a handful of unique elements: tsuchi ("earth"), hi ("fire"), mizu ("water"), kaze ("wind"), and sora ("sky," also called "heaven" or "void"). These classical elements are referred to as the godai and are common themes in Buddhist architecture.
