  • Very pleasantly surprised. Slightly dilapidated temple with three gardens: one dry, and two north and south on two sides of a big tatami room. Not only are the gardens quite high quality, the place was deserted when I visited (summer Sunday afternoon, plenty of people at the castle), could absorb the aesthetics at my leisure.
  • Good Job
  • Despite the "daruma-ji Temple", is indicative of it only the story of the birth of Sakyamuni, shigemichi and death. Cathedral &amp; gardens is good method is obsolete.

  • It is a quiet temple located at the foot of Mt. Sawa. It is a temple of the II family. Rock Garden was respectable.

  • Garden of the landscape seen from the living room and tired of silence. Sit and just looking at too much peace at heart will be likely to forget.
