This temple and the grounds are very well maintained. Take off your shoes before you enter the temple. More than a tourist attraction, people still come to pray, meditate and present offerings. Be respectful and use indoor voices or be silent. Give yourself enough time...More

Beautiful orange trees surrounding the temple and some lovely cherry blossom trees. A nice temple with a lot of lanterns hanging . It can be skipped if you are tight on schedule and have to visit several places in one day .

It's a big and majestic temple with beautiful architecture. Worth visiting. Don't forget to go up to the 2nd level where you can see directly the Buddha statues.
