Nittai-ji Temple, Nagoya

3.4
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.

  • Is a Buddhist temple built in the friendship between Japan and Thailand. It is not proselytizing sect Temple. You can enjoy the spaciousness and visit daily and the room felt stifled by the spacious grounds. The nearest station is kakuozan. Is to remember the King = Buddha's.

  •  Long walk or 20 minutes from home. It is a temple that took his familiar.  From station of underground sensation King mountain walking. When he heard surprised him most was was so nutty temple at the temple to friendship between Japan and Thailand. I tend to know Thailand who, nearly 10 times went to Thailand. It's just due to increased familiarity. It is a pro. You can have the respect from the temple with the name of the country at least not only next to old grudges and the next largest.

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.
