  • I think that it is a temple which closes fairly early. Because I did not think that it closed so soon, the visit was not possible. Because there is no explanation writing, what kind of temple is unknown.

  • Until last year, the temple here is only Temple in freedom and one of the 6 ground cellar tours day 1 day early 21-23, gate opening and closing hours 21 13:00-15:00 22 9:00-15: the last day at 9:00-14 at closing time, little model differs from other temples were. I work late last year three days before and was abandoned only this temple, but time is the 21st day of the year, arrived at 14:30. His wife two years ago, not knowing, in the evening and Hata to come, he was at the temple-like who? The remembered because it was noted in a strong tone. Prior to that, and other worshippers argue something is, and might be just some bad mood was. Anyway was a little good atmosphere, but the atmosphere is different from this optical Temple! To the temple Office first, so many monks who Elo! And was greeted with a welcome atmosphere. There was never before ye-not happy atmosphere. And also, Hata changed. Who was the character of rectangular and Hata until last year only the jizo have not been drawn, but this year just like other 5-ji Temple painted each temple jizo form? The was changed and Hata. Color was white until last year, but this year is purple. The same 5-ji Temple's staff ago the Temple other than little was 300 yen! And until now no pimp (here) only here through brought, this year was the pimp! This change is another big applause. See the sad scene just for Hata's falling to the ground, it is gone. Wonders freely of the temple happened to? That I don't know, but I'm very nice change. Individuality is important, but without our roku-jizos Tour event of the year as the other temples and equally, this year I think? Joban jizo also I felt calm ago.
