We visited in the evening and it was lovely to see the pagoda without the crowds. The Ginkgo tree is not to be missed, really impressive and not something you see everyday!

The temple is good but I loved this place mainly for its huge and wonderful 1200 year old Ginkgo tree. Such character

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 temple is also nice, tranquil and historical. And the location is close to the main bus station.

Just to see the magnificent 1200 year old Gingko tree still standing proudly in the courtyard. Nice temple and statues scattered around the small grounds.

We accidentally went inside this temple, an awesome discovery on this giant Ginkgo Tree, 28 meter in height, with a circumference of 10 meter. Stunning.

Worth going just to see the giant Ginko Tree. We went twice and there was hardly anyone there both times. Very peaceful. Located off Kokubunji Street which is like the main shopping street. Its set back from the street but you should see the pagoda when you are near it.

Kokubunji is a must see. It sits between the train station and old town so you don't even have to go out of your way to get a glance at this 3 story pagoda. But the main attraction is the giant ancient ginko.

Beautiful, relaxed and not crowded - very interesting history and a guide is not needed, Centrally located and great to visit if you are doing a walking tour or just wandering around the streets!
