Built by the great monk Taicho 1300 years ago. The principal deity of Natadera is the 11 headed, 1000 handed kannon. Natadera remains a park that celebrates nature. 11 different places and buildings are throughout.

It's not surprising that this beautiful temple complex and garden rates so highly in Komatsu experiences. The sense of serenity given by its beautiful trees and moss gardens makes it a great place to visit.

This place is worth a side-trip if you are in the area. It's very unique compared with many other temples. I live in Kyoto and often go to temples and don't get "templed-out" so I have seen my fair share over the past 17 years...More
