  • We see it because you cannot see unless you book I was special time with no reservations. Monzeki Temple, also placed the Imperial period only in the forefront in major temples, and felt elegant atmosphere, guests can relax in the quiet, without that person. Stamp album also appeared to be a monk who was written carefully, I liked.

Was complete while at the Temple of the Imperial capital of mainly listening to the Guide Hall Academy, statues, etc. between the upper half of the capital of many fusuma paintings to the dignity of a temporary Imperial Palace was. Yamabushi costume, tools was interesting, but was surprised at the size of large conch shell. And able to listen in fudo of Muromachi and Kamakura and Edo and present, believed image easy to understand guide for more instructions.

  • Cut our House and even tear out "gate mark" a "connection" in the temporary but referred to "temporary Imperial Palace" where "shogoin" festivals, abnormal situation can be met on the same day, Daigo-JI monzeki promised without immediately. Only think nature and the foot is drawn to something there. It is the air of the Daigo-ji Temple Sambo Academy has a bit of tension but calm and comfortable atmosphere. In talks with "gate mark" bloom in the roots talk quickly and during that time has passed.

  • We have seen the special. Adults 800 yen per person. Kano screens or fusuma generously displayed, was a valuable experience. You can blow a conch Horn. Relatively uncrowded, slowly.
