This famous temple is worth the trip. The temple sits high on a mountainside which you access going up a wonderful covered stairway. The old main building is awesome just as the view from the large wooden balcony. The red maple tree (momiji) leaves in...More

I've seen many beautiful temples, but this one has an amazing view of the town and the sea. The Hydrangea path is gorgeous.

『雨でも寺院内を巡りその魅力を感じられる場所』として紹介いただいた寺院ですが、それ以上の神秘的な雰囲気が感じられる寺院だと思います。境内の多くの建物が木造で、中には百年以上の歴史が刻まれたものもあり、触れるだけでも、その歴史の積み重ねを感じられるでしょう。 山腹の崖に建造されただけに、本堂の舞台からの眺めは絶景です。紅葉の名所でもあり、境内が朱や黄に色鮮やかに染まりますが、雨の日はその上に霧が発生し、幻想的な風景を作り上げます。 一方で、登廊を含めた全ての通路は広くはなく、また各建物への移動は基本的に上り下りであるため、譲り合いながら静かに巡ることをお勧めします。車椅子用の通路もあるため、どなたでも参拝出来ます。 Although I was taught there as "A spot where I can feel its fascination even on rainy days", the fascination of the temple was above my imagination. Many buildings in the precincts are made of wood, some constructions have been over 100...More

My only wish is to have visited here on a cooler day. The reward of the beauty of this temple and its surroundings is worth the effort that is required to walk from the train station to here.

Hasedara Temple is a bit of a train ride from Nara but well worth it if you like to get off the well-worn tourist trail. It is a spiritual pilgrimage site so popular with devout Buddhists, not so much with tourists. The adjacent town is...More
