It was the best! It is a wonderful temple where you can feel the guidance of the Buddha with your skin.

Visited in November 2019. When I tried to get out from the direction of Ashigara Station to the Ashigara Pass, the road was closed due to the typhoon. I parked my car and worshiped. The origin of the temple was old and it was related to Saijoji Temple. I couldn't see the temple, but it was a very beautiful and well-kept impression. Maple was very nice. As mentioned above, there are parking lots and toilets, so we recommend that you stop by when you pass nearby.
