This temple may not have such an immaculate garden like the nearby, and easier to reach Hokokuji, but it was definitely worth to me the little extra effort up the hill from the bus stop. There’s an attractive garden as one enters the temple area,...More

If you have time after visiting the bamboo garden at Hokokuji temple, then drop by. But, don`t expect too much here. There is a cafe and a Japanese tea house, if you would like to rest a bit. For more, refer to "hiddenjapanguide".
