  • This is a peaceful and beautifully groomed little oasis tucked away from the hustle and bustle of ciy life. The floor boards were designed to be a warning against attacks - they chirp like birds...  more »
  • The temple itself is old and is clearly a temple used by worshippers. At the back there is a beautiful garden. Worth a visit.  more »
  • This has a pretty but small garden. You cannot walk through the garden, just look at it from the platform of the main hall. The main hall has numerous artifacts, many related to the Prince who many think was actually a woman. There was an NHK historical drama about this a few years ago. The main hall has the Nightingale floors which are fun to walk on. All the signs are in Japanese so much hard to appreciate. The adjacent Shinto shrine is also nice. But both are small, only takes about 30 minutes to go through the temple, about 15 minutes for the shrine. An hour tops. Take bus 45 from Hamamatsu station, about an hour bus ride each way. 10 minute walk.
  • Beautiful grounds, even in December. The "Nightingale" floor is fun to walk on. It is best to read up on the history before you go.
