The only reason to come to Komatsu. Make a day trip -byo picnic and drinks. Take bus from #3 outside Komatsu station and get off at last stop! (Not the stop before as suggested by TIC!) Don’t cross the main road - walk pop direction for 5 mins and pay exorbitant 1000¥ at entrance. Once inside just follow the arrows and you’ll pass through every site - worth the trek and the high entrance fee. Spring and autumn stunning! 540y each way - Komatsu buses have joined the global economy and accept credit card tap on tap off (Kanazawa is yet to make this leap) - you will need one credit card per person - or just take lots of 100¥ coins and remember the first child is free - half fare for other kids. Return bus stop is opp side of main road.

We came here on a beautiful afternoon and was not disappointed with the temple and its surroundings. The map tht comes along with the admission fee is very useful to cover the full ground from Attractions 1-9.

This place closes at 4.30pm, so do come early before the sun sets. We spent around an hour here taking photographs and climbing the steps for the good view of the temples. The best view can be seen from the viewing platform that is opposite from the caves and main shrine.

Do come before 3pm if you intend to take pictures and cover the full breath of the Temple grounds. It gets a bit quiet after 4pm and they start closing the temples, shrines one by one. We left around 4.30pm the moment it closed. We were overall very satisfied with this place.

Came to Natadera after lunch and enjoyed walking through the meticulously manicured Japanese garden. This is the also a Kannon Temple with a huge statue inside.

It’s is really peaceful to walk and enjoy the scenery.

Highly recommended if you are in this area.

My son and I visited in October 2018. Beautiful fall colors. Local restaurant and shop nearby. Taxi available. Take the train to the station nearby and taxi. Many temples tracks to hike and walk.

We were driving from Kanazawa to Kaga and decided to take the opportunity to visit some of the more remote shrines.
We had no expectation, yet it turned to be a real surprise!

Although it didn’t have the scale of a lot of the shrines in Japan, it did give us the tranquility and peacefulness. Big moss bed under all the big trees, main shrine hidden in a cave, and observatory deck to view all the different coloured autumn leaves that made this little shrine a real hidden gem.

Highly recommended!

Built by the great monk Taicho 1300 years ago. The principal deity of Natadera is the 11 headed, 1000 handed kannon.
Natadera remains a park that celebrates nature. 11 different places and buildings are throughout.

A short trip from Kaga, Natadera Temple is perhaps the most stunning place we visited in Japan. It was in mid October, so the Autumn colours were spectacular, probably the best time to go. A very unique and sacred feeling place. Sublime, not to be missed.

Natadera temple is located roughly an hour from Kanazawa by car. The main draw of this place is in the scenery it holds. This included a large rock formation, a main path flanked by moss and a large pond. It is spread out over various elevations. We did not enter the gallery or the larger temple building. A booklet was given at the entrance with information on all the structures you can find. This temple had a different feel to most others which helped avoid temple overload and is worth visiting if you have the time.

It's not surprising that this beautiful temple complex and garden rates so highly in Komatsu experiences. The sense of serenity given by its beautiful trees and moss gardens makes it a great place to visit.

I feel lucky to have seen this place in my lifetime. As you can see by most pictures, the autumn leaves in November are breathtaking. On a whim I purchased some dried candied apple slices from the vendor right outside the temple and it was so good! I have to admit that I'm dreaming of it now wishing had bought more than one bag.
