Daihonzan Eihei-ji Temple Reviews
有名なお寺なので拝観者が多いですが、いつ行っても心が休まります。境内というか参拝コースはかなり階段があるので覚悟してお出かけください。 more »Because it is a famous temple, there are many visitors, but whenever you go, your heart rests. Please be prepared to go out because there is a considerable stairway of the temple or the worship course.
絵には書いてあったのですが、入り口からは想像も出来ない広さでした。苔むした感とか、太くてものすごく背の高い杉とか、すごく感動しました！ more »It was written in the picture, but it was an area that I could not imagine from the entrance. I was very impressed with the mossy feeling and the thick and very tall cedar!
A chill, peaceful space to hang out for a few hours.
A quiet and peaceful temple, modeat, with a sense of humblness, will revisit if have chance
