  • Eisai studied Rinzai Zen sect in song and return at a later date to spread Zen Buddhism is the founder of the temple. That the prestigious Temple seems to be correct. Giving opportunities in the atmosphere of temples, not to watch me.

  • A very huge place, but most of the places you are not allowed to go inside if you not a monk. But very peaceful and a must visit place.
  • Japan's oldest zen temple, not much to it, but respectable regardless.
  • And visit several times, this time for the first time received nokyo-sho. And we will have the profound experience in not only the views of the Hall and grounds, not looking for tourist, such as fusuma landscape around the main shrine and shrine of Dragon.
