“Beautiful and interesting.”
Review of Zenkoji Temple

Zenkoji Temple
Reviewed 5 May 2015

Lovely temple, with so many interesting features--the "roaring dragon" overhead, the dark passage to the fateful lock, and a feeling of ancientness. Beautiful grounds and many smaller structures, shrines, and monuments well worth wandering through. The friendly folks at the lobby entrance have an English language guidebook for the temple that can be borrowed during ones visit, for those of us not fortunate enough to read Japanese.

The name of this temple is called "Kaizenkouji". It is a very beautiful place. There is a "Nakiryuu. That this is very strange breaks out. Please actually carry out and strike a hand. You will surely be surprised.

This is a beautiful temple tucked away in a suburban neighbourhood. It has lovely strolling gardens with a carp pond and drooping trees and the interior is very interesting. You can go down a pitch black passage using your hands to find a sacred key which will give you a lifetime of good luck, there is a beautiful dragon motif painted on the ceiling that if you stand under and clap, echoes back at you like a dragons roar. If you happen to be in the Kofu or Sakaori area with a few hours to spare I highly recommend this location as a nice place to while the time.
