Central located temple with a nice court, the temple itself unfortunatley is not open for the public (at least wasn't when we were there). There's also a museum at an extra charge.

Not saying that this place is bad, but busy temple is just not my thing personally. We managed to take a lot of pictures with the red leaves though. Let's say we enjoyed the red leaves but not the crowd.

Very nice temple in a beautiful onsen town. Quite busy with tour groups and tourists. Worth a visit and then head to the local shops nearby.

The town was kind of built around this temple. It's a Buddhist temple and it's linked to the onsen nearby also the power struggle at the Kamakura Shoganate (1185 to 1333). It's a relatively small temple and you will enjoy a quiet afternoon walk in...More
