I visited this temple in late October. It is a big complex and you could walk a lot. All of the shrines are part of teh USESCO World Heritage site. It is worth visiting!

Compared to the other shrines at Nikko, this one's a bit underwhelming, though the three Buddha statues are magnificent. The real gem here in my opinion is the Japanese garden attached to the Rennouji treasure house. It's a compact work of art.

Don't be put off by the title to my review, all of the Shrines at the Nikko UNESCO World Heritage site are pretty amazing, but out of them all the Nikkosan Rinnoji Temple was my least favourite. Rinnoji is a Tendai Buddhist temple on a site that dates back to the year 766 and was established by the Buddhist monk Shōdō Shōnin. Whilst amazing I simply felt that it didn't have the character and awe that I felt at the Toshogu and Futarasan Shrines. The whole heritage site in general though is beautiful.

As one of the Nikko’s World Heritage Site Temple, the Rinno-Ji Temple is worth the visit as it’s a great place to walk around and get to know more about this Buddhist Temple. There is an admission fee to see the temples. Moreover there are a few small shops and restaurants around the area to relax if you don’t fill like walking in.
