Todaiji-temple at Nara, Japan
Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples are prime examples of wabi-sabi. We may be able to see signs of deterioration and damage especially on structures that have retained their original appearance. People who seek these structures' original, perfect form may not consider them very beautiful unless they are restored. But if we look at them with a wabi-sabi mindset, their deteriorated damaged appearance tells the passing of the years.

The Tea Ceremony and Wabi-sabi.
Wabi-sabi is deeply linked to the tea ceremony, so much so that there is a word “wabicha,” (“cha” means “tea”) , a practice that pursues a simpler tea ceremony rather than a grand one. It is a style of tea ceremony that prizes simple tea bowls typically used as everyday items.
