Located right next to the 'moving walk' this multi layered temple, trickling stream and captivating forest is certain to calm your inner thoughts. Take the time to slowly walk through this enchanting shrine and meditate on the serenity of the location.

Nice walk looking around at a Temple in the snow, especially like one of the ones up the top with amazing wood work.
