This place is poorly marked. We can't find it after walking in and out of Temangu Shrine. Suggest keep your eyes and ears peeled while walking.

A lot of plantation, tree with quite old ages standing both sides of road, plums, and other iconic plantation. But you need to check carefully about the direction signs, which by and large not clearly located.

Large, very pleasant temple... the temple stalls sell local umeshu and there are plum trees all around the gardens.

I only wish the monk allowed photos of the beautiful dry landscape garden. There is a small wooden deck you can sit to look at the garden and engage in some meditation. To avoid the crowds, come around 30 minutes before closing time.

Much more quiet than Tenman-Gû, one the way to the Museum, this is a temple worth a true zen atmosphere. One of the places not to miss in Dazaifu.

Incredible and very calm place for visiting. The visit will take about 20-30 minutes if you want to take time to enjoy the atmosphere of this zen temple.

We sat down on the steps and admire the view for a while. Didn't pay to go in when baby woke up. But it was lovely enough as it is on the outside. It is free if you stay on the outside garden.

Such a beautiful place to visit! Although small and bit packed, you can sit there and admire the gardens and it was so peaceful! It is on the back streets in Dazaifu, but grab a map so you wont miss it!

We stopped by at the temple on the way from Dazaifu Tenmangu shrine to Kyushu National museum. From outside, a small rock garden was presented. I was about to go out but my brother went on the building. We found a larger rock garden inside...More

Many of the Zen gardens in Japan, including the famous Ryoan-ji temple in Kyoto, use raked gravel to represent the sea, large rocks, etc. That is true of the front garden here at Komyozenji. However, the rear garden also incorporates more plant material and large...More
