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.
