This temple is so beautiful and ancient from the outside to inside. It has many floors. I and my friend went there on the New Year. We were so lucky to have chance to hear the monks worshipping. It was so amazing.

Starting with the sound of Japanese drums and Triton's trumpet, you will be gravitated to experience the essence of mystic Buddhist ritual. Rhythm of drums and Buddhist sutra chanting are so dynamic and you feel like the fire will burn all bad things surrounding you....More
