There was a light-up event yesterday and today. This year's autumn leaves weren't very beautiful.

The autumn leaves are wonderful, and there is also a Zeniarai Benzaiten secretly. You can also walk from Ashigara station.

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.

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