  • Fewer people have been long time ago, but went a long time, I felt, I wonder if the rust? I thought. I'd had a very glittering images, had faded considerably. And this admission is?? Much higher. Arhat Hall to private line "chumon" left and right, like the spectacular. Buddhism was Muslim, so I don't know if content is the teachings of each Arhat statue or something descriptive and more spectacular I thought. Even a lot of statues in hell Valley, is very interesting. Spread Buddhist teachings as well, enjoying the art of Buddhist institutions, so little admission, less of it? I thought. I good long enjoyed as a museum.

  • A glittering temples? It is. A privately owned ones? Unlike the temple buildings located in the precincts. There is not place to visit quite interesting, in particular to go.

  • Other than the temple, there is an additional sightseeing spot up to the hill, heart of spirits. I like it.
  • What it lacks in history (and perhaps authenticity, given that it's a businessman's pet project) it makes up for in its variety and aesthetic. Beautiful views, grand architecture (the underground "hells" especially) and modern detail make it well worth a visit. Especially recommended if you've been around Japan and feel like you never need to see another temple - this one is something a bit different.
  • Kinda expensive to get in, but the old house to the left after you enter (and possibly up the first set of stairs) is worth the tour. The guides have an English version of facts and are very friendly. Also, be sure to go to the very, very top. You'll see an elevator somewhere. You can use the stairs or the lift. Follow the path to the top and there's a garden of marble and at the very top, it's a marble mountain land. Worth checking out!
  • Nice temple and museums
  • Beautiful and full of different things to see. The asking price is steep but well worth it!
