Not so crowded as other places but worth visiting. Located close to the wooden houses. The gate at the entry is really impressive

We traveled by train lines, LTD express Hide wide view, it has beautiful scenery. Snowy valley Trees were white like in the film Frozen. When traveling to a city Takayama. We found an old town full of charm. Famous Dishes Hida beef is mixed with Miso grilled on magnolia leaf. So yummy.

The temple itself is fairly typical, but worth a visit--and it's on your way to many delightful places in Takayama--you know, like the wonderful bridges, each of a different color. The ginko in the courtyard is twelve feet in diameter and has accumulated a personality all its own.

This was one of the emptiest places I visited in Takayama and very nice for it as well. There's a large gatehouse with a guard who smiles when you come through, two well laid out gardens and the main hall. It's much the same as all the other temples in town but I liked the vending machine for Buddhist tracts.
