The temple is interesting by itself and together with near sights (mini bambooforrest and another shrine) certainly worth a visit. The temple is frequented by worshippers, which adds to the atmosphere. In the evening the main gate is closed, but the temple is still accessible...More

If you are in Shuzenji then definitely visit the temple, it’s right in the centre and if you’re there at 5pm a Shinto monk will ring the very large bronze bell.

Central located temple with a nice court, the temple itself unfortunatley is not open for the public (at least wasn't when we were there). There's also a museum at an extra charge.

Not saying that this place is bad, but busy temple is just not my thing personally. We managed to take a lot of pictures with the red leaves though. Let's say we enjoyed the red leaves but not the crowd.

Very nice temple in a beautiful onsen town. Quite busy with tour groups and tourists. Worth a visit and then head to the local shops nearby.

This temple is not very big, but well kept and pretty. Sometimes big tour groups come by, but they don't stay there too long. It is otherwise pretty nice and quiet.

Very small temple. Clean and specious layout. The surprising part was the water to wash hands is Onsen so it's hot! You can also see Shiba inu here - I guess the owner owns him.
