The drive through the valley of the temples is so peaceful and beautiful. Imagine incredible temples lined up in front of a massive green cliff, with the main attraction being a replica of a picturesque Japanese temple. Worth a detour to at least drive by...More

If you have some free time, a visit to the replica temple would be time well spent. For a small fee you can wander the grounds and feel a little zen. You drive through a cemetery that is very well kept. And you can grab...More

Simple yet peaceful visit. Ring the negativity bell, sit and just take in the view, feed the koi fish. Nice little visit for a $5 activity.

Lovely surroundings and a mostly solemn, but pleasant visit. If it weren't for the numerous tourists (like us) it would be serene. Some if the fattest coy fish we've seen, and the black swans were beautiful.

This is a beautiful sanctuary. It really is a temple & worth taking your shoes off, for to see. The inside of the temple is filled with beauty, symbolism, meaning. The grounds are kept very well.

This is the best word to describe these grounds. It’s absolutely majestic. There are temples from various religions. It seems odd to visit a cemetery as a tourist place but the entire grounds are beautiful! Of course the Buddhist temple probably has the biggest draw....More

Beautiful Temple very peaceful. You can buy food for the fish , swans and birds. If you are lucky the birds will sit on your hands and eat the food. Lots of souvenirs at the shop.

You can ride the motorcycle there. There will be a parking lot and you can park it there and then walk to the temple.
