  • A quiet temple just off the hustle of the museums drag.
  • I wish I did not have to leave this place. If you have read my reviews you know I love statues and especially a variety of them. I also love gardens and fall colors. Choan-ji is time well spent on all of these things. Blown away by the foliage, struck by the garden and surrounding forest. Loving the various statues and how (every one) of the statues is different and depicts a different posture. If on a day trip then I would recommend about an hour. If staying overnight then take a few hours. Very relaxing compared to the rest of Hakone.
