Compared to its more famous counterpart at Nagano, also called Zenkoji, this quiet temple has nothing much to offer visitors who don't understand Japanese. For 500Y, you can enter the inner prayer hall and go on a self-guided tour with a voice recording explaining everything in Japanese. We saw people standing on marked footprints on the floor and clapping – the echo presumably bounces off the ceiling, which is adorned with the faded painting of a dragon. Not worth the trip from Kofu town, in my opinion.
