Fukiji Temple is one of major temples located in the Kunisaki penisula where Buddism flourished. The temple dates from the 8th century and the main hall erected in the 12th century is the oldest wooden structure in Kyushu. The main hall is dedicated to Amida Buddha and is one of the most famous of its kind, along with Byodoin in Uji and Chusonji in Hiraizumi.

Legend has it that the main hall was built from a single Japanese nutmeg tree. You can see colorful wall pictures portraying themes of Buddha, which can be only viewed on a sunny day for preservation. The precincts have huge ginkgo trees that form a golden carpet of fallen leaves in autumn with a backdrop of red maple colors.

The secret is out but this little Temple with it's charming inn is simply amazing.
The food is on a whole new level and the surrounding nature is serene.
Definitely should be on your list when visiting Kunisaki.

国宝 富貴大堂は平安時代の建物で中には見事な国重要文化財 壁画があります。県指定有形文化財の笠塔婆がありました。5基あり。鎌倉時代に僧広増によって立てられた、天正年間(1573年 - 1592年)、キリシタン大名大友宗麟の時代に、多くの仏教寺院が破壊されたが、富貴寺大堂は難をまぬがれたそうです。
