A gorgeous temple with lovely buildings, gardens and river. We nearly didn't bother but we're glad we did as this was one of the most scenic of the temples we saw on our trip.

Really high up in the hills above the town by the shrine. Our guide knew where to walk, otherwise you would miss finding it. There are a number of little statues w/ colorful knitted hats and many coins left as offerings.

Very spiritual and magic place. It has a very interesting history behind the fire and the tea. I really loved it, just remember to drink that tea as it's meant to heal you and help you.

We went to Daishoin Temple after visiting the great Torii. We walked north and uphill to Daishoin in 10 minutes. The temple is beautiful and peaceful. The views at the bay are also beautiful. We spent about one hour there. Recommended.
