This temple is most notable for its wooden statue of Kannon, the 11-headed goddess of mercy, but it also has a lovely garden and pond, and a viewing platform with a great city view.

Get off the train at the station and go her first to make sure you see it. It's fantastic the temple grounds and the view to the sea. The city itself is special and this is the icing on the cake
