There are several pavilions, most open to the public. The gardens are especially beautiful during the lighting of spring and autumn, when you can enjoy the cherry blossoms or the bright red of the leaves. The temple was also used in some scenes of the first live action film Rurouni Kenshi (Samurai X), so fans of the movie can also check the bridge used on the recordings.
