    Peaceful...Impressive!! It’s our second visit there (the first was in 2011) and worth every step across this Buddhist sacred place!

    After seeing the other tumuli in Asuka, it was interesting to be able to see the massive stone structure underneath and actually be able to walk inside it. It doesn't require a long visit and I wouldn't suggest going to Asuka just to look at it but if you are in town it is definitely worth seeing.

    井伊家の菩提寺であり、井伊家の勃興に深く関わりのある寺です。鉄道とバスを乗り継いでいくことも出来ますが、本数が少ないため、多くの参拝客は自家用車やレンタカーを利用します。
    本堂の北側に位置する庭園が素晴らしいですが、この庭園に限らず、境内の至る所が素晴らしいです。本堂に入るところから有料であるため、無料で本堂北側の庭園も愛でることは出来ませんが、無料で立ち入ることが出来るエリアも全てにおいて丁寧に整備されており、きめ細かに寺を維持している人々の努力に感謝せずにいられません。
    大河ドラマの舞台の一つになったとは言え、浜松市街地から距離があるからか、休日でも訪れる人はそれ程多くありません。心静かに参拝することが出来ます。

    The temple is the family temple of the Ii clan and is closely related to the rise of the Ii clan. It can be reached by bus, but due to the limited number of buses, most visitors use their own cars or rent a car.
    The Japanese garden located on the north side of the main hall is so wonderful, but not only the garden, but the whole temple precincts are wonderful. The garden on the north side of the main hall cannot be enjoyed for free, as there is a fee to enter the main hall. But all the areas that can be accessed for free are carefully maintained, and one cannot help but be grateful for the efforts of the people who meticulously maintain the temple.
    Although the temple was used as a stage for one of the NHK Taiga TV dramas, there are not so many people visiting the temple even on holidays, probably because of its distance from the center of Hamamatsu city. You can visit the temple in peace and quiet.

    You can see a lot of sakura here. Almost every area in this place full with sakura. But a little but far from Sapporo, should drive.

    Not every Japanese know even that there is tobs of two last emperors nearby Tokyo. This destionation usually is not mentioned in guide-books. But it is very calm and very Japanese. Way from Tokyo takes around hour, walk there - 1-2 hours. Please respect traditions and wear sufficiently: long pants and long sleeves.

    I went there with my mom as it said the lavenders are in full bloom. Sky was gray though, with some rain. Very strange collections of Moai Statues, Gargoyles, stone Henge, and Buddha with lavender field. The dome/ lavender hill hide the Buddha, in a beautiful concrete housing designed by famed Tadao Ando. Take subway to Makomanai. There are buses but infrequent. I used taxi and had it wait for us until we finish.

    This is the site where Tenguto members were executed. Takeda Kounsai, the leader, and his company, over 300 Samurais from Mito, were enshrined in this graveyard.
