  • Cannot, without too much time, marvelously attractions at the show and was only looked at from the outside. But no gohyakurakan, is impressed with the atmosphere of the temple! A straight road from the front continues in the back. First of all is the Yamato. It is a gate have dignity, but not very much. Ahead somewhat small gate is the main entrance. You can see through the tiny space of the gate at the back of the main building. Geometric art, and very much of the temple's atmosphere. What heart is washed and wrapped in a solemn atmosphere. Only and simply explore the tourist attractions and the like around the Temple so far, said without thought, and. I felt for the first time. I wonder if the old? It may be alone in this space that resulted. (Tokyo Temple then these kind of things and impossible. ) Marvelously glance through the window from the outside of the Hall. I think coming into the tour, then take a look at over time.

  • 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!
  • Pay the admission fee, we visit the gohyakurakan. Beautifully lit, Central is divine. The statue was placed in the wall's masterpiece. This was the second visit, but fun at the entrance. O.k. picture and signs with a finger, acknowledged that is was said that with a straight face, I sheepishly into the gap. Return what you see you next time?

Look to the main train station for the most modern accommodations Morioka, with popular business hotels offering simple rooms, restaurants, and pools. Farther to the east, things get a little more characterful and atmospheric in traditional Japanese ryokans. Riverside options draw lots of visitors, while side-street guesthouses and hostels provide good options for budget-conscious travelers.
