Just inside the gate and looks back on both sides of the approach of pagoda. Amida Buddha are enshrined in the not-so-great main hall. Demon supporting the rafters humorously at the corners of the pagoda with bright orange-red. Many temples in the South yamashiro country not be flashy but quaint because public transportation is not good but once visit?.

  • From Osaka and prayed in their own cars. Hanshin Expressway, two Osaka via of the Marina Expressway in about an hour. Parking fee is 300 yen. I will not be because less traffic on the narrow road a few kilometers to the temple several sections not parting, but the first encounters oncoming cars. If you are accustomed to the narrow road number 3 car no problem. Hydrangea show coming to the temple and the pagoda is very fine, remained vivid in memory.

Say well sees light with LED lights in the Amitabha Buddha sitting image according to the description of the priest, the very old, and image, and everyone who has lived nearby for the priest, hakarai.
