  • Such an incredible thing to see. It was breathtaking. I would recommend going around sunset. You’ll get some great pictures. Just keep in mind the gift shop looking area will close so do that first.
  • This was the best part of the day. The view from the train drastically changes before the last station We ended being there at like 3.30 in the evening.It gets greener and serene. The temple itself is fabulous with shrines in every corner. The reclining Buddha itself is great, but the atmosphere and the other shrines makes it better. I recommend a walk to all the other shrines (one is a cave) and then to the Buddha.
  • The biggest reclining Buddha statue in Japan. The temple is peaceful and very nice ... recommended
  • It is a good place not just for buddhist. This temple is serene and calm with strict rules which make it nicer to visit. The buddha statue is perfect.
  • Only thing I had to say is "it's the most beautiful place I've ever been to
