If you love Japanese gardens, please visit this temple. Also, there is a rose garden, which is unusual for a Japanese temple. Lots of history here. For more, check `hiddenjapanguide.com`

My sister and I visited Entsuin twice, once at night and during the day. Both visits were worth it. There was a light-up event at night that highlighted beautiful autumn colors. The pond reflected trees around it like a mirror. This event is very popular,...More

Not as famous as it's eminent neighbour Zuiganji, but this temple wins with its lovely gardens. Was there in June and the flowers were blooming. There are also caves here to see.
