  • The temple was once the bodhisattva temple of the imperial family. It goes down from the entrance to the Buddhist shrine, but the approach is also beautiful because there are few such as the nemotonakado of Enryakuji temple to go down. I feel the elegance only in the temple related to the imperial family, but I feel the nobility of a calm taste. The precincts are large and quiet, so you can visit the temple slowly and calmly.

  • On the first day Reiwa May 1st, I visited a temple related to the Imperial Family. There are not many worshippers here because it is a little long walking distance. It takes about five minutes from Senwakuji Street to the Gate, and from there, we arrive at Daimon in about five minutes, and you pay 500 yen for the visit. Just to the left of Daimon is The Kannon Hall, where you can worship Kannon, which was brought in from China during the Kamakura period. It seems to be popular with the woman as kannon-like of a beautiful woman and a good relation prayer. A splendid Buddhist shrine that was rebuilt in the Edo period is an important cultural property. it was the first day Reiwa, and there was a procession of red seals that were not always lined up. In addition, there was also a register to commemorate the throne.

  • A long walk from nearest station/bus stop. Take around 15 minutes with a hill to climb. So a bit challenging and do wear a comfortable shoes. The main attraction of course the garden. It was so beautiful during this fall foliage. So grateful to witness this temple. In addition, the history was detail with explanation of every room with english translation.
  • Beautiful walk around this temple. During November, you can enjoy the maple trees changing colors. Amazing to see!
