Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A Buddhist temple set on a hill with quite a beautiful garden surrounding and an extensive cemetery that you can walk through. The temple itself is very impressive and talks are available on the significance of certain items and rooms within it. The temple rooms are quite extensive and the cemetery is lovely.

This temple is best known by the cycads 1,100 years old and the oldest in Japan. And its garden Kampuen (Mt Fuji viewing garden) is nice. At the pond of the garden I heard "moo" the sign that an American bullfrog is in the pond and splash! It just reminded me of the Basho's "old-pond-and-a-frog" poem. This temple is a Nichiren Bhuddhism temple and in its main building the life of Nichiren one of the most popular 13th century priests is well illustrated. Nichiren is one of the five historical figures Kanzo Uchimura picked as representative Japanse in his book "Japan and the Japanese" . Chogyu Takayama is one of the Meiji Period intellectuals who was inspired by Nichiren's teachings and was buried there. The treasure trove of the temple called Chogyukan has wide variety of treasures with historical interests including various gohonzons (the object of worship) of Nichiren Bhuddhism. These mandaras are made up of squiggly kanji characters of Hindu gods and Shinto gods and native gods. It is truly worth a visit.

A temple that has Daiso Tetsu, which is counted as one of the three major Sotetsu in Japan.
As it is the oldest and largest Sotetsu, I went to visit it to bring good luck for the new year.
This is my first visit, but in addition to Sotetsu, I can enjoy cacti and a large garden for a temple.
Ponds, pine trees, oak trees, views of Mt. Fuji, etc.
This is a temple you should visit at least once.

During the New Year, the Noto earthquake suddenly happened, which made me feel a little depressed, but I decided to visit Ryugeji Temple in Shimizu.
This year's zodiac sign is the dragon, so I'm not sure if it's auspicious, but I went to pray. I prayed for the elimination of epidemics, the calming of natural disasters, the health of my family, and the future success of my Hanshin Tigers baseball team. I've already visited the Hachiman Shrine near my house to celebrate the New Year.
