Explore the peaceful spiritual complex of Rinno-ji, built in 766 by a Buddhist monk deep in the mountains. Examine the intricate, ornate structure of the 15 remaining buildings, which hold many interesting artifacts. In the Three Buddha Hall, you'll find statues of Amida, Kannon with a thousand arms, and Kannon with a horse's head. Perhaps the biggest highlights are the serene Japanese gardens: take a seat among the manicured trees and precisely placed stones, and enjoy a moment of quiet reflection.

Under renovation. June 2015. Still a lot to see and interesting to vitness how renovation is performed. Lots of other temples in the area as well.
As of January 2013, the main temple is covered in a container building, and the main internal areas are hidden while they undergo conservation work. Still some treasures to be seen on the walk round, but if this is on your "must see" list, wait till renovations are complete. Having said that, there is still a huge amount to see in the complex as a whole.
