    Although we have been to this temple several times, it is always pretty and seems to change with the seasons. Be sure to explore the hill behind the temple with a small shrine filled with tanuki, or "racoon dogs" and the somber crypt with Kannon statues dedicated to lost children. The garden is especially lovely in the spring.

    Gold Tower went up in 1988, and has seen better days. Nonetheless, they have made some improvements since the last time I was here.

    Basically it is sort of an indoor amusement park for kids, especially those aged 2-12. There are numerous play areas, including a play area filled with plastic balls, and a huge room with air-filled slides and other things kids can run and jump and bounce around on. They also have a bigger room with a much taller slide for the kids - I got the impression this was a recent addition. Same with the mini-paddle boats for little kids.

    You can opt to go up to the top of the tower - it has seen better days, but still offers great views of the Seto Inland Sea. I'd recommend going closer to sunset for the best light.

    There is also a game room with air hockey, table tennis, scores of video games - and as I unexpectedly discovered, they are all free. This was the hardest place for the kids to leave. And if you have any teens, probably their main area of interest.

    A half-day trip, if you are in the area, isn't a bad way to go. It opens at 9:00 on the weekends, and we used it to give the kids some excitement before we went on to travel to some of the temples of the Shikoku Pilgrimage.

    Ubushina shrine is not a destination, but a beautiful stop if you are in the area. The small shrine has a long staircase leading up to a maze of shady paths that have surprising turns with interesting rocks and views. At the base is a little park for a toddler to enjoy stretching legs and running around. Be sure to look for the break in the rock fence in the parking lot which leads to Ubushina Udon. It has good food at a reasonable price.
