  • Is a Buddhist temple located in hitoyoshi city. Foundation dates back to the Muromachi period and has been erected by Mr. Sagara had ruled the hitoyoshi. Indicating that Saigo had stayed, and is famous as a haunted Temple was used as the headquarters of the Satsuma army rebellion when the monument would remain. From hitoyoshi station within walking distance, but take care if you use bus. I get off at the temple before the young country, from hitoyoshi station take bus hitoyoshi Internet is a front. Is a historic Buddhist temples, during the Satsuma rebellion with the hitoyoshi city up in flames, it burnt down the temple at that time. As the expenditure has been rebuilt in the middle of the Meiji era, but also the building because of aging or, totally feel the history in the current Temple is not. Main hall and is free and tours, to visit the ghost picture is published in the temple's main hall. You can see the pond behind the main hall is ghostly. And published from time to time preached by Osho videos, watch free. Temple has been closely related to the history of hitoyoshi and the ghost images are worth a look. If visiting the hitoyoshi, please try stretch your legs.

  • In the past, the Saigo army tents, ghosts, scrolls the temple is famous. Last year is interviewed once a whopping company of Dazaifu shrine building is in the middle of rebuilding the temple. (I Dazaifu is still great. ) Was undertaken afterwards had been like, striking force of the Carpenter who is completed from Kuma's friend I want news, visit this spring. There were involuntarily gasped at a glance, such as admiring the beautiful Hall. We will visit until Hall was opened to tourists, but also be beautiful. Visiting the temple staff, famous ghosts, greetings, visit, was really good.
