This small and unassuming temple of the Rinzai sect of Buddhism may seem average on first impressions, but it has a secret. Beyond the simple gate and just behind the modest main hall lies a beautiful bamboo grove, with a forest of over 2,000 plants surrounding the picturesque tea house nestled in the grounds of the temple. Although this temple is slightly out of the way from others, it can be a great place to take a breather and escape the crowds!
Admission is ¥300, or ¥600 with matcha and a wagashi snack at the tea house included.
