“Do not confuse it with Sofukuji - two different places!”
Review of Shofukuji Temple

Shofukuji Temple
Reviewed 9 December 2017

Some photos for this site are actually for Sofukuji. You've been warned folks.

Anyway, this temple is gorgeous, probably my favourite one in the city. Loved the architecture and climbing up behind the buildings to view the roof tops.

No entry fee.

This temple is not far from the Museum of History and Culture. Sofukuji however is near Shiambashi tram stop. Just google map search the different names.

The ancient temple is so precious that almost all areas are not refurbished. The tranquil atmosphere makes us feel calm and peaceful. The untouched structure withstands the tests of time and weather. This ancient temple is not big but definitely worth a visit.

NB the spelling we have is Sofukuji, but TA has it "Sh...".

Beautiful Temple. Except for your time contemplating the Buddhas it will not take long to stroll through the temple grounds. It is noted for its entrance gate but we found the Buddha statues more interesting.

Take the tram to the end of the line at Shokakuji-Shita then walk a couple of minutes.

Easy to reach by streetcar, this temple is must when visiting Nagasaki. There is small entrance fee, but it's definetly worth it. Take stroll around temple grounds and soak in the atmosphere.
