Saihoji temple is famous for its lovely Moss Garden. But, for me it should be famous for its mandatory Buddha Scripture copying for each visiting guest. The temple is opened daily once for a fixed number of visitors. Anyone interested to visit, needs to send a postcard to the temple with your request of visit with details of name, number in the party and date of visit. The temple will then send a post card 'admission permit'. On the day of the visit, each guest is to finish copying a Buddha Scripture before visiting the garden. The copying of the Buddha Scripture is a blessing gesture.
