The monastery is peaceful and soothing. It runs a school also for local children. The garden around the back side is a peaceful place to spend some time. The main meditation hall is big and magnificent.

This is a really lovely temple inside and out on it's own, but the free formal Zazen meditation was beautiful.

Understated and simple. Shows a very nice summary of the life of Buddha in lovely understated paintings circling the walls inside. Starts with the Buddha's mother dreaming of white elephant, goes through scenes in Buddha's life like childhood, renunciation, meditation, enlightenment, teaching, death .

I had heard that the wood carving in this temple was very intricate but we found it disappointing. Very minimalist Japanese feel to it and still impressive but the wood carving was nothing to write home about

Lovely peaceful place. Very simple large shrine. Nice and quiet - not too many visitors. Good murals of episodes from the life of the Buddha.
