Very pretty buildings and well kept grounds. The temples and gardens cover quite a large area. I found the older buildings most interesting as well as the main temple interior.

Nice place to wander around and explore. Grounds are beautiful and buildings are interesting. All descriptions in Japanese only, however.

My crew and I recently visited this Temple. It was beautiful! We all really enjoyed the service. Interesting to take part. Must remove your shoes before entering the Temple. No photography allowed during the temple ceremony.

The temple is amazing to see in person. The ceremony was moving and inspiring! The architecture and colors were so beautiful.

Really nice temple with a great park and a museum. They also allow you access to many of the buildings which is unusual in my experience. Well worth a couple days of exploring if you are not rushing.
