  • I came to The Gorakuji Temple, which is also the name of the station of The Gorakuji Station of Enoden. There was a longing for The Paradise Temple, the tv drama "Our Morning" in those days, i thought it was a very distant place, but it wasn't really that far away. Let's pass through the gate of thatch. The inside of Enoden's car was very crowded, but there were only a few worshippers in this precinct, and we had a quiet time to visit. Admission is free of charge. Will this lead us to the Paradise Pure Land?

  • A dark pink hydrangea in front of the main gate welcomed me. It is a small and very tasteful temple. Tourists don't come to the hotel, so you can see it calmly. What surprised me was that it was free of charge. Because it is flat with a slope zero, it is recommended for the elderly with children.

  • Gokurakuji Temple is a tranquil place to enjoy the hydrangea season. It is also the important cultural property of Japan.
  • Hydrangea heaven! Through these gates you have to hunch down to get in. The best time to visit this temple is in the summer for me! The hydrangea are mind blowing. Very rudimentary during off season.
