Excellent temple and large garden. In the summer the hydrangeas are everywhere.

It's a wonderful place. During the rainy season it's quite busy with the hydrangea festival, but usually it is a quiet place. Well suited for a picnic, the nature is beautiful and it is a bit hidden so it is mainly popular among locals.

It is a beautiful park. When the ajisai are in full bloom in mid June, it is spectacular.

有料駐車場の受付対応が最悪。
初めて訪れましたが、料金が書いてある窓口は誰もいないし、他は何もないし書いてもないので途方に暮れたら建物の中から無愛想な女性登場。
こちらに顔を向けず、ろくな説明もなし「中に入って停めて来てから受付です」と言われ、停めて戻っても、やはり窓口には居ない。
しばらくすると「中で受付します」と出てきました。
「初めての利用なので、わかるように説明頂かないと流石に私にも我慢の限界が…」と伝えると、
顔どころか体もこちらに向けずに事務的な声で「申し訳ありません」とあり得ない対応。
謝る気がないなら謝るな。雇い主がお寺側だったので、そちらに改善のお願いとして連絡すると「お金は払ったのか」「たびたびそのようなお声はありますが、受け止め方は人それぞれ(どんなことがあったか話は聞かれてません)」「結局は謝って欲しいのですよね?」とお寺側も最悪。ちゃんとした謝罪は本人がすべきと考えておりましたし、飽くまで改善・指導をして欲しいと最初に伝えたのに、この反応。人の話をまともに聞かない、話しているところを遮る、この方も最低でした。

もう利用はしません。非常に不快な思いをしました。
車を停めず、散策するだけなら大丈夫かと思いますが、このお寺を利用するのはやめた方がいいです。
