  • Urasa is a temple of bishamonten. From here by car 10 minutes west Temple. Is the approach by taxi or private car and went to urasa is a little inconvenient, but if you must-visit place. You can see sculptures, fusuma, decorated the great sculpture of Ishikawa cloud. Technical impressed! And there is prohibited. And the DVD commentary it is recommended it be turned from a look at the first.

  • West temple with a history of 500 years in epic Ishikawa cloud butterfly can be seen. Big mistake I thought only old temples. With great sculpture of Ishikawa cloud Butterfly transom, wall, from the ceiling. Double-sided engraving enough the pestle, open your mouth, please look out for. Indeed, the Michelangelo of Japan! It is a feeling.

  • 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.
  • Road dogen Zen-Master Tiger 調伏 figure many times want to see wonders!
