This temple dates back to the 10th century and it is a quiet place which is usually free of hordes of tourists. There are many fine buildings here and an attentive staff. The souvenir posters are quite dramatic. This was once the home of Prince Shiki and the poetry monument placed here laments his death: Here's my translation: Grassy mountain field. Green leaves and pink bush clovers, Such sadness today. Do the flowers bloom in vain Awaiting dear Prince Shiki?

Not the easiest of places to find, despite being on just about every tourist map, the long flights of stairs tend to put all but the hardy off. Apparently, Winter is the best time to see the Camellias for which the temple is famous. The main hall itself is pretty average for Nara but the view across the little moss garden to the city makes it the perfect place for a break. Not so crowded at most other times, probably because of the stairs, so for me, it represents somewhere worth visiting.

If you're interested in a trek through the countryside, get yourself a copy of "The Northern Extension of the Yamanobe no Michi" from Amazon and start at this temple or the nearby Fukuu-in ji temple. A day's hike on the Yamanobe no Michi trail is an unforgettable experience, especially if you are able to travel in spring or autumn.

Byakugō-ji is a Buddhist temple. Many of the wooden statues are from the Heian and Kamakura periods and the temple's five-coloured camellias make it a Prefectural Natural Monument of Japan. Recommended for history bluffs and trend-setters. This temple is a little far from Nara Center, so we recommend you to use a GPS to avoid get lost.
