  • Just went to cherry blossom viewing season. Very nice, and greeted flowers in full bloom, weeping cherry tree blossoms. Visitors also enjoy the beauty of cherry blossoms slowly and quiet at least, very happy! Each spring special published in three gardens (garden of ocean advocacy, Korin song water garden, Moso bamboo's merchant) also split to produce taste nice and quaint, was a good 10 minutes. Hondo rather "and" big Orin while listening to the tone sound, sonorous gravely visited and prayed.

  • 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 »

  • 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
  • It is a large temple with a beautiful garden in the temple. When I visited were Buddhist Flower Festival but can they see the flow of you can visit quiet. We have visited exhibitions of contemporary art and paper cut-outs and a very rich time.
