  • This is one of the must-visit sights in Bessho Onsen. The temple has a deep and interesting history, modest but well-maintained buildings, ancient trees, and a great view. There's no entrance fee but also no English information. It's not touristy but often full of tourists, so I personally find some other places in the surrounding countryside more impressive.
  • One of our most memorable experiences, we were there in April 2016 , the food was amazing .
