  • I visited in the cold rain. So I hesitated on the religious institutions of comparatively high entrance fee is entered. Explore the Park while the stamp rally. Recommended is hell ' tour of the underground tunnels and marble area. Anyway long hell ' tour, I feel the fear. Marble area mystery is what made this area the landscape is the best. I think it is interesting you think theme parks.

  • Kozo-ji Temple's cherry blossoms and fall foliage seasons, though the winter air is so clean, so views of the Seto Inland Sea in the future on the hills of the heart. Leave and go up the back just vivid and unique kosanji Temple Museum, stacked Marble Hill. Iconic monuments, citrus green and orange, setouchi Islands and often forgotten when the had. Kosanji Temple Museum is common, but admission is several hundred thousand yen (sorry I forgot the exact amount), so in the winter especially enjoy. Ramps or lifts so wheelchair users is fine. It is 1 a 2 km walk.

  • Expensive entrance fee is of moderate size. Took money and what not, however, not like that appreciate and feel the history of this temple to build is a little tacky. People who have assets in the iron and steel industry in Osaka if you asked people in the workforce, for dough mother Kozo so decided the temple construction. Even if it still had construction work around the grounds. I think if there's so much money people for admission fee low you want to. Incidentally located next to the parking at this location less than 500 yen. I came from Tokyo relaxed country atmosphere in could see his city more than greed and bad taste.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful and full of different things to see. The asking price is steep but well worth it!
  • 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!
  • Very nice. Take the cycle route and have an amazing weekend.
  • First of all for the parking lot. Ikuo Hirayama Museum next to the large free car park. It is also 停menakute in the paid parking around here 10 minutes closer. Hotel, a member of the JAF I listen discount. You are quite broad. East of sunlight Tosho-gu shrine, Kozo-ji Temple in the West is really is intact. Made of white rocks and go back to future appearing heart hills, might expect too much of some are too overwhelmed to. Rises to the top and around the sea and mountain views, is a very good place. Also wheelchair doesn't matter because there is an elevator. White is too, so go in the summer and is quite painful. Go back to 'hell'. Be scary to children as adults may be seriously looking at and thinking my way of life. Cool do to, so is recommended in summer.
