  • Nice temple complex in a rural area. Not the most exciting place in Japan but more authentic than the bigger tourist destinations.
  • Good place to take a break on the Kibiji Cycle Trail. It’s a series of shrines and temples with beautiful timber walkways that link them together. Quiet and peaceful as the grounds are quite extensive. There is also a small series of shops at the base of the steps to the temple where you can get drinks and snacks.
