    From urasa station was located about 15 minutes by car. From the gate into the precinct was decorated with fine carvings. Hall is double thatched roofs, are finely crafted, reminds me of history. In the temple there of Ishikawa cloud Butterfly works and was surprised at the richness of talent here. Outside the little color Hall also in covered with fine sculptures is a colorful fishing ceilings and plaster walls, parapets, was a sight to see. Lived in the main video is very helpful. If you have time, come! Enters a tape in the Hall, and the description of the video is the same.

    Went to a friends house Minami-uonuma we take time. Painting and sculpture of the ceiling in the West the Temple Hall is a stunning works by Ishikawa cloud Butterfly known as wasei-Michelangelo. I in the Vatican in Rome sees statue of David in Florence Pietà statue sculpture painting is comparable to it. Really great thing (^ ^) v must see it. Taken but unfortunately it is not.

    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.
