  • It is an old temple in a residential area. The bamboo grove is also a highlight, but it seems that Mr. Ichikyu was born near this area, and a stone statue of the mother and child was installed.

  • It is a temple with few tourists. This is the temple where Mr. Ichikyu, famous for his TV manga, lived with his mother when he was a child. I remember the scene where my mother lived in the temple where she lived. Access is inconvenient, but please go.

  • The bamboo grove is nice but it is actually a very short path. In my opinion, the temple at the end of the bamboo path is much nicer to visit. The temple is very small but has a very calming effect when you are inside. If you are here for the bamboo grove, might as well visit the temple as well.
  • Nice place to visit but a bit of a let down in regards to the grove itself. Shoden-ji Temple however was an oasis of peace and solitude and we definitely appreciated it. See the grove, but don’t worry too much if you missed it. It’s also a bit poorly signaled.
