  • It is 500 rahan in the trees with a bright feeling such as "If there is 500-rehan in the forest of sculptures". There is a free parking lot of about 20 cars in the precincts, and there is no admission fee. A great place to stop by.

  • At any time you go there, you will be healed by the statue of "500 Rahan" in the garden. This statue seems to be still being built. Changan-ji Temple is also famous as a temple of flowers, and the flowers of the four seasons bloom in the garden. This time, I was able to see the "snail", "drosophila", etc. The most famous is the autumn leaves, but I like this garden very much at the time of the blooming season, such as iwacigarette, iwasajin, shumeigiku, and so on, and it passes through the four seasons.

  • A quiet temple just off the hustle of the museums drag.
  • I wish I did not have to leave this place. If you have read my reviews you know I love statues and especially a variety of them. I also love gardens and fall colors. Choan-ji is time well spent on all of these things. Blown away by the foliage, struck by the garden and surrounding forest. Loving the various statues and how (every one) of the statues is different and depicts a different posture. If on a day trip then I would recommend about an hour. If staying overnight then take a few hours. Very relaxing compared to the rest of Hakone.
