Komyozen-ji Temple, Dazaifu

4.1
#2 of 13 in Historic Sites in Dazaifu
Enjoy a moment of peaceful reflection in the Zen gardens of Komyozen-ji Temple. Replete with standing stones and carefully raked gravel, the gardens reputedly date back to the 12th century. You can see a simple garden in front of the temple, but it's really worth paying the entrance fee to see the quiet and picturesque rear garden. Here, you'll feel cut off from the outside world, surrounded by maple trees (some apparently 300 years old), Japanese Buddhist sculptures, and islands of moss.

  • parts of this temple were closed and you cannot get your goshuincho stamp here, but the gardens alone make up for it. komyozenji has one of the only rock gardens on kyushu, and its stunning in the fall. the man who was working there was very polite and helpful.
  • Its a good place for you to experience the Japanese culture nd feeling of watching the maples, juz sit and watch quietly.
