  • There was free parking in front of the temple Otani. Anyone watching ohya Kannon was told nothing to park in the past. However, if you go today all parking ban. Reluctantly, for the first time a friend I dropped off, moved to free parking (10 seconds). Fasten at the parking lot of the shop is too stupid. Then Daddy stand guard over parking and Otani Temple priest like Recca has been shout. Without the parking and stopping for a few seconds what's wrong? You don't yet, entered the grounds of a temple. Decided lack of tourists too courtesies go 2 degrees. We were unfortunately Kannon.

  • It is a history of ohya stone near the temple. Staff parked at the parking lot and pay the admission fee. Statue of senjyukannonbosatsu carved stone in the main hall was enshrined. And those who came to Japan from abroad because it is similar to the statues of the Silk Road, which were sculpted by thought. This in addition to stone and seeing there.

  • Here you can experience a unique part of Japan's history. This Temple is connected to the nearby Oya History Museum, where the unique Oya stone was mined. This site has many Buddha's engraved in the Oya stone​, including a giant one, over 30 ft tall. The scenery and shrines are beautiful, but there's not much else there.
  • This temple doesn't look like much from outside but its main hall is nestled under an imposing cliff and houses a collection of Buddhist figures carved into the rock. One of them in particular is said to be the oldest of its kind in Japan at over 1000 years old. Worth the 400 yen when you consider the money needed for preservation.
  • Peaceful surroundings, pretty gardens
  • Huge! It is a terrible ohya Kannon power. Bought a frog made of ohya-stone as a souvenir, I went back. You can see Buddha of Kamakura period carved total 10 body from the Heian period as deity Kannon Temple built pit houses of Jomon people in Edo period established precincts and get inside. Human skeletal remains of Jomon period, excavated from the temple Otani Temple Treasures Besides this and what exactly exhibits

  • 南無觀世音菩薩 年底來放假了沒法進去參拜,人是放假了佛菩薩可沒有放假,外面有觀音像可以參拜。
