This temple is located right at the tour bus parking lot. We were there on Saturday afternoon and there was barely anyone. Maybe 2-3 people inside the temple although there were quite a few tour buses. The temple is quite big, nothing inside or around it is in English. There are public restrooms right across from the temple as well. The temple was free to visit (or at least I didn’t see any donation baskets). You have to take your shoes off when going there

Attractive, but another temple
Feb 2019 • Couples
Another well maintained and pleasant Temple. Very clean and neat, but hardly exciting.
When we visited we were the only souls there, besides bus drivers using its car park as a rare place to park.
However a nice area to stroll around the narrow streets.

Impressive entry gate

Not so crowded as other places but worth visiting. Located close to the wooden houses.
The gate at the entry is really impressive

We traveled by train lines, LTD express Hide wide view, it has beautiful scenery. Snowy valley Trees were white like in the film Frozen. When traveling to a city Takayama. We found an old town full of charm. Famous Dishes Hida beef is mixed with Miso grilled on magnolia leaf. So yummy.

A Ginko that deserves the reverence it inspires
May 2014 • Couples
The temple itself is fairly typical, but worth a visit--and it's on your way to many delightful places in Takayama--you know, like the wonderful bridges, each of a different color. The ginko in the courtyard is twelve feet in diameter and has accumulated a personality all its own.

Deserted jewel
Jun 2013 • Solo
This was one of the emptiest places I visited in Takayama and very nice for it as well. There's a large gatehouse with a guard who smiles when you come through, two well laid out gardens and the main hall. It's much the same as all the other temples in town but I liked the vending machine for Buddhist tracts.
