#5 of 63 in Historic Sites in Nagoya
Kakuouzan Nittai-ji is a Buddhist temple located in the city of Nagoya, Aichi prefecture, Japan. Nittai-ji was built in 1904 in order to keep the ashes of Buddha, which the Kingdom of Thailand gave to Japan. ”覚王” means Buddha and “日泰” means Japan and the Kingdom of Thailand in Japanese. Usually, each temple in Japan belongs to a religious sect. However, Nittai-ji doesn’t belong to any religious sect. Every three years, 19 religious sects take their turn to dispatch a chief priest to Nittai-ji. Usually, the ambassador of the Kingdom of Thailand visits Nittai-ji on his birthday.

    Precinct spread widely into the shrine from the Boulevard leading to the Higashiyama from Sakae, walk for 5 minutes and you will see the five-storied pagoda. "Remember King" is used in place of this area also known as tathagatas, "day,", that represents Japan and the Kingdom of Thailand. Japan does not belong to any denomination, only Interfaith Temple, each denomination in the first presidency three years in priest sits seems to be. Plenty of greenery around is for residential areas to walk, is a temple of calm.

Where to stay in Nagoya

The central district, just south from the castle and its gardens, houses the bulk of accommodations in Nagoya. You'll find a good range of standard hotels, with onsite restaurants, simple rooms, and perhaps a pool in this area. Look slightly to the west, or closer to the castle,to find more luxurious accommodations. Across the surrounding residential areas, take a look close to the metro stations to find some of the most conveniently located, but budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses.
