Came to Natadera after lunch and enjoyed walking through the meticulously manicured Japanese garden. This is the also a Kannon Temple with a huge statue inside. It’s is really peaceful to walk and enjoy the scenery. Highly recommended if you are in this area.

Built by the great monk Taicho 1300 years ago. The principal deity of Natadera is the 11 headed, 1000 handed kannon. Natadera remains a park that celebrates nature. 11 different places and buildings are throughout.

Natadera temple is located roughly an hour from Kanazawa by car. The main draw of this place is in the scenery it holds. This included a large rock formation, a main path flanked by moss and a large pond. It is spread out over various...More

It's not surprising that this beautiful temple complex and garden rates so highly in Komatsu experiences. The sense of serenity given by its beautiful trees and moss gardens makes it a great place to visit.
