  • Changanji Temple is a temple that you always stop by when you go to Sengokuhara. This time, after seeing Hakone Wet Flower Garden and The Susuki hara of Sengokuhara, I visited this temple. The reason why I always visit this temple is that I can see the flowers of the four seasons and i am always healed by 500 Rakan-san. This time, Iwashakin, Shumeikiku, and tsuwabuki were in bloom. In addition, this time, I got a seal in the office, but it was quite a splendid seal.

  • Small temple with beautiful and interesting park full of statues in the forest. Also very pleasant in the rain and worth a trip. Even the Koyteich next door makes a visit worthwhile.

  • 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.
