  • 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!
