    From the parking lot, go up the Black Gate Street. Green is fine I am sure is filled with people, are crowded and you can imagine. In 5 months. Yet on Sunday while I is free. From watching the garden walks turned in the main hall, but it takes considerable effort. To avoid old people and poor people, was baptized in the car is better. The castle was finally reached and dignified and stately appears. You go, will chart my aunt one in, but to look at. You can listening and living national treasure, feel the weight at all. The three-storied pagoda compound. It is very clean. It is rotting people have seen pictures of her in old decayed from the now unthinkable. With some part, because what the national treasures and important cultural properties, otherwise, is not understood well. It would be nice to enjoy the fall foliage to avoid if you don't like crowds.

    After watching Japan garden, climb stairs and lots of jizo. I looked up and glorified his temple. There was three-storied pagoda at the back. It is a famous temple there is a lot of places. Speaking is like stone near the temple, by car seems to climb a bit.

    Very nice place but be ready to climb as there is a hill where you have to walk for about 300 meters.

    This was a beautiful, worshipful place. We were the only visitors, which added to the ambience. Small grave stones of children lined the path way. Each was decorated by a colorful pinwheel in the spot for flowers. I liked this temple better than others that I visited because it lacked all the commercialism that surrounds so many of them. I am glad I went here.

    It climbs up. This is Cindy. The trickiest part is who's personally like. Of course the Buddhas are also great. But after all this is a fall-

    One of the Lake's most famous Temple. Famous for autumn colors. Recommended for riders and unusual bike jizo. Hondo is a national treasure. There is free parking fee is 500 yen. Until the main building there are many temples in long Hill. It would be nice because there is a large garden, nice and round.
