Lovely temple and gardens! One of the oldest in Japan. The three story pagoda and main temple structure are National Treasures. The guest services have brochures in Japanese and info sheets in English. It's ¥500 to enter. Very lovely and peaceful! And unlike most temples in Japan, these aren't replicas!
