  • It is a large temple located near the Wutai mountains Summit. Built the five-story pagoda was rebuilt in daishido, left hand back on the left, and up the stairs to the gate and entering the grounds enshrined monju bosatsu statue of Buddha on the right main hall (monju-do), this temple's long history makes people feel.

  • This is pardon the pun a very zen like place, it is so peaceful and surrounded by beautiful natural bush land, whilst I was visiting there were quite a few worshipers chanting, I hoped that I did not disrespect them by being a nosy tourist. I loved this temple in all it's glory situated high above the city of Kochi over looking the city and kind of guarding and watching over the people below, well that's the way I interpret it. Please go it's really nice
  • Absolute must if you are in Kochi!
  • A very nice hill top temple with a 5 story pagoda and moss garden. No 31 on the 88 temple pilgrimage.
  • It is old temple on the top of the mountain, and very calm and good atmosphere. Ground of the temple is moss. Almost all tree turn color in autumn (mid November to early December). Red and Yellow leafs are very beautiful. Bus service is available from Kochi station, Harimaya Bride or Katsurahama Beach, once an hour, 600JPY.
  • peaceful
