  • Only a few tourists ventured to this quiet temple while I was here, but it's entirely worth a visit. Located in the midst of other temples, it has serene grounds with a variety of interesting trees. It's known for its hall of statues of the 500 disciples of the Buddha, each carved with their own expression by famous sculptors from Kyoto in the Edo period. It's an amazing sight. What really added to the experience was the friendliness of the elderly man at the entrance, who asked each and every visitor where they had come from. I'd go again just to say hi to him!
  • Oh, I remembered I remembered. If, looking at the images recalled the scene at that time. Even went so as much as possible what you want to take is. "Eh? In these places the gohyakurakan? "And came back to clear memory also.

  • 住持很好客很可愛 羅漢堂內部莊嚴寂靜 存在各式各樣的羅漢像十分壯觀
  • Gohyakurakan Chapel is a little bit cold. But the good thing about it is!
