  • A wonderful, quiet, and historic temple in a somewhat remote area. It has a number of interesting features, such as an outer wall like a castle with openings to shoot through, a three-tiered pagoda, and an inner garden you can view while eating 'ohagi' sweets in walnut sauce. The latter are only available mid-March to November, but not on Fridays (except for a few times -- we went on a Friday before a holiday and were lucky!). Deserves to be better-known, but was so amazing to basically have the place to ourselves on a Friday afternoon.
  • "Walnut Groove must ' of Miss helpful is hung on a poster, the parlor, was born in Showa I. And private courtyard landscaped, low walls and are designed with Kohei Ueda. When the weather is nice far heal mentally and physically at Asama volcano!
