Daihonzan Eihei-ji Temple Reviews
大本山というだけあって敷地が広大。 受付などがある近代的な建物を通り、靴を脱いで敷地内をめぐる。建物がすべて廊下でつながれているので天候を気にせず見学できるが、建造物を外側から見学できないのが残念。 1階には会社の事務所のような場所があり、たくさんの僧侶が会社員のように働いている様子が見えてしまい少し興ざめしてしまった。 more »The site is vast because there is only Mt.

I think that it is necessary to eat sesame tofu of the near by.
A chill, peaceful space to hang out for a few hours.
