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 2000 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 200yen.
