Eikando Zenrinji Temple provides a contemplative natural environment for the worshippers, monks, and tourists who pay visits to meditate and offer daily prayers. This Buddhist temple of the Jodu-shu sect dates back to the turn of the 10th century and has been gradually built and rebuilt over the centuries. Climb the temple's tower to appreciate the best views of landscaped raked-sand gardens and Japanese maple trees. Don't miss the famous Amida Buddha statue, which allegedly looked over its shoulder at a slow-moving monk during a ritual in 1082 and stayed in that position ever since.
