This is Sanjusangendo. The Kannon image inside cannot be photographed.

It was a little underwhelming for us, but we loved the peaceful gardens and the pop of bright orange from the darker style wood. When we went, no pictures were allowed inside, but the golden statues inside were absolutely stunning. Recommend if you're in the area.
Note: Visited prior to Covid, so things may be different.

The temple itself offers nothing special. But what you find inside is.
After removing your shoes you will be walking through a hallway. In the middle you will see a huge Buddah meditating. He is not alone as on his left are 500 statues, same of his right. It is nice to appreciate something a few hundred years old. If you pay attention you will see that each face is different! Quite a good work! For an impressive look, stand on one of either side of the room, align with the first row of statues, and look at them. The garden looks beautiful too. As of February 2020 the entrance fee for an adult is 600Y. Taking photos is prohibited inside the temple.
