You can't really miss this as it has a 3 storey pagoda here. It is worth a visit as it has a really old ginko tree on site too. Very quiet in the morning so great time to visit.

This is a good example of a temple. There is a lovely pagoda as well as the temple and also a ginkgo tree which is 1200 years old. A small site but interesting

Visited this temple in the early hours of the morning and it was very peaceful. Not many people around and if you are driving, you can drive your car into the compound without needing to find parking space. The pagoda was picturesque with snow surrounding...More

Snowy white backdrop accentuates the beauty of the place. The temple and the ginko tree plus the tranquility of the place is amazing

Hida Kokubun-ji Temple is a small temple in the area. It has a quiet and peaceful environment and most important of all it has an 1,200 year old gingko tree. The best season to come here is by late autumn when the gingko tree leaves...More

This temple is beautiful with the gingko tree in the background. With the autumn almost over, almost all the leaves drop to the floor & creates a golden-like carpet! Too bad that half of it were swept up by the people in the temple. But...More

We visited there because of the famous ginkgo tree. On November 20th, 2017, the leaves all turned yellow and the ginkgo looks spectacular!! It's a 1200 years old tree, so tall that you can see it from miles away. Other than the ginkgo tree, the...More

We were staying just next to this temple (Thanyaporn 2), so we could visit it any time we wanted. This is one of the oldest temples in the Hida region, built in 8th century or so. All the times we were here, there was almost...More

We happened across the temple and its 1200 year old Ginkgo tree when walking to the old town. Rain was pelting down, but the precinct was nevertheless easy to walk around and to appreciate the significance of the temple just off a main street.
