Welcome dear travel fans! I've been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I have been crazy about Japan since I was a child and will be happy to share this passion with you.

Additional information

The temple was originally founded in the 10th century, but was destroyed by fire in the 16th century and rebuilt in the 18th century. The main building is a traditional wooden structure that houses a statue of Amida Buddha, while the garden is the highlight of the visit.

The garden at Rurikoin Temple is a traditional Japanese garden that is designed to evoke a sense of tranquility and harmony. It features a pond, a waterfall, and a variety of plants and trees, including cherry blossoms and maple trees that turn fiery red in the fall.

One of the most striking features of the garden is the moss-covered path that winds its way through the trees and along the edge of the pond. Visitors can stroll along this path and take in the serene surroundings while listening to the sound of the waterfall and the chirping of birds.

Rurikoin Temple is only open to the public for a limited time each year, usually in the spring and fall. During this time, visitors must make a reservation in advance to visit the temple, as only a limited number of visitors are allowed each day.

Rurikoin Temple is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in Japanese gardens and traditional architecture. It offers a unique and memorable experience that combines natural beauty, history, and spirituality, and is a testament to the enduring appeal of traditional Japanese culture.
