  • Myokenji is one of the lesser visited temples which in itself makes it worthwhile, to avoid the mobs of tour bus groups. Its garden is a treat, and not often visited. Listed in new book "HIdden Garden...  more »
  • Chokushi-Mon gate with Abbey. TV drama in "red hearse' series that appeared in the funeral scene in the temple (lol). Group of Nichiren Buddhism Buddhist temples and the main temple taxi Temple is impressive enough. In addition to fewer visitors, worshippers, worshipping Buddha of course with the Devas and several gardens is in a peaceful environment to enjoy leisurely.

  • Myokenji Temple : The mainhall is a gigantic structure. This main hall of Nichiren style was constructed in Edo period. Inside the hall you will see the family creasts ( symbol ) of congregation are depicted on every single wooden square boards on the ceiling. Life-sized images of "Nichiren", "Nichiro" and "Nichizo" are enshrined here. It is amazing in its size when you go close to the building although it's difficult to capture the true magnificence of this structure. It is one of the greatest spots to see in Spring and Autumn.

  • Great place to view the Sakuras during Spring.
  • I like Kennin-ji, Shoukoku-ji and Ninnna-ji more than this temple.
  • Friendly monk wrote in my goshuincho here
  • 3-11-the first long weekend, was the first day of "fall special visit", but we could see the gently. Put in the main hall is the main garden Buddha like 拝memashita. While some temples and shrines and connected by a bridge, the precinct will continue through. The Kyoto is central in this temple.
