  • Yakusenji Temple is a temple of The Song Buddhism, about a 15-minute walk from JR Hyogo Station. I visited the shrine when I walked around the area in February. There was a signboard of the Imperial Palace monument in front of the gate. This is the place where Kiyomori Hira confined Go-shirakawa-in. In addition, it is a temple that enshrines the old man of the Seven Lucky Gods of Hyogo. It is a recommended spot for those who are interested in history, shrines and temples.

  • Modest for the cultural treasure it holds. You almost can't see it from the street, but once you find the entrance the Buddha itself dominates your view.
