  • An amazing temple in the mountains south of Kyoto. Best accessed by car and only paid parking is available. The large seated Amida statue is older than the famous one at Byodo-in. There is also a bright red pagoda nestled in a valley. The hydrangea in June are particularly famous. Hiking courses that take in Buddhist rock carvings extend into the surrounding hills.

  • The rock Temple, seems to be 0/729 (729). 946 made on so about 3 m high statue of zelkova serrata 一木造ri and stately great Buddha is statue of the Buddha Amida Nyorai. In the corners are the Devas of the Kamakura period. Great bodhisattva elephant. Beautiful three-storied pagoda. There are many attractions.
