  • The temple at the foot of the echigo-rustic. But stunning carvings like reminiscent of Nikko Toshogu youmeimon step by step. I can't help but marvel. As well as sculpture, painting, fusuma, inscriptions until. Forget the time of Ishikawa cloud Butterfly works and enjoyed. Worth a look once they are available.

  • Stunning. The main temple and gardens on their own would be worth a visit, but the carvings on the ceiling of the Kaisando annex are simply breathtaking. Amazing details and colors. You climb some steps to a raised floor so they seem really close. The annex is a tiny wooden framed building with a thatched roof and the whole thing is protected from the elements by a huge roof.
  • The carving was awesome. It's walkable from the local station.
  • And was this impressive temple. Near what you regret passed times but never noticed. It is a temple of butterfly clouds.

  • When was the Temple of surprise. You say the sculpture is wonderful. When I was a painter who? The people had a sketch hard. As it is known as echigo. Nokyo-sho!
