This temple is most notable for its wooden statue of Kannon, the 11-headed goddess of mercy, but it also has a lovely garden and pond, and a viewing platform with a great city view.

Hase-Dera is not only a beautiful location overlooking the sea but also beautifully appointed. There is a mixture of old and new and many more ancient items that I was expecting.

We were rushed through in an hr. With my tour group. Barely saw everything. Let alone enjoyed it. I recommend 2 hrs to enjoy the serenity, so many beautiful statues and views of the ocean.

Great location for a very nicely kept temple & grounds. A little walk up takes you a great view point. Beautiful gardens & lots of Carp in the ponds. A bit boring though.

Beautiful giant golden Buddhas in two temples. Very beautiful and serene Zen garden with Kois and bamboo water fountain at the bottom of the temple. Need to go up the stairs to the temples.

Response from Peter K | Reviewed this property |
We were there just last week. There was some maintenance going on, and possibly some scaffolding over a few structures. It definitely didn't detract from the temple or the gardens in any way. Unless something major is... More
