Jun.

One of the five Monzeki temples of the Tendai Buddhist sect. The temple is known as the most popular sacred place in the Rakuhoku area, and is related to Hideyoshi Toyotomi (a famous unifier of Japan). Not only impressive buildings such as Kyaku-den (Guest Hall) and Shin-den (Emperor Hall), but also two beautiful gardens (Yusei-en Garden and Shuheki-en Garden) are within the temple precinct. The Hydrangeas are in full bloom in the early summer rainy season, and maple leaves reflect the autumn sunlight and illuminate the entire area in red.
