  • Beautiful and spacious temple with an interesting history and background. The little darumas standing all over the site certainly add to the special and sympathetic mood. Not so crowded and especially in the Momiji season definitely worth a visit.
  • Gorgeous temple up in the mountains, with little daruma all over the temple grounds (when you buy a daruma there you're supposed to return it, an in, leave it on the grounds, once your wish came true). It's easiest to reach by car but there are buses too. And you can easily walk between the temple and Minoh Falls, though it might take a while.
  • Lovely peaceful place. Not so touristy as other temples. It's set amidst a forest and there appear to be lots of hiking trails in the area.
  • The most beautiful season for red leaves is middle November.
  • A bit of a walk from Minou station but it makes for a great day trip.
