The gardens in this temple are magnificent. The carved crevices and buddhas in the mountainside give it an almost otherworldly quality. The temple itself was closed for repairs when I visited, so I can only say things about the garden. When in Matsushima it would...More

Not as famous as it's eminent neighbour Zuiganji, but this temple wins with its lovely gardens. Was there in June and the flowers were blooming. There are also caves here to see.

The nice thing of this temple is the garden. It is not very big but it is quite peacful. The temple itself is not very impressive, however it is quite nice the small temple dedicated to the son of shogun that died young.
