If you continue on the walking trail at Keisokuji you will eventually come to Shakudoji.

This small temple is tucked away at the end of the trail, which isn’t really an end since the walking trail loops around and takes you back to the beginning.

The temple is known for its ancient eleven-headed Kannon Bodhisattva statue which is a National Important Cultural Property. The temple is on the top of a hill with a pond below. Next to the temple is a water fountain which is very welcome after the long walk here. The stairs down to the pond are made of uneven stones, take care and take your time. The pond is quite pretty and a few of the maple trees around it were just at peak color when we visited.

If you visit Keisokuji, it is worth it to continue on the trail to Shakudoji.
