I wanted to visit this temple to see the guardian statues that lead up to the main complex. Once we saw the temple guardians, we went up to the main complex. It is pretty... read more

We visited this temple as part of a custom private day-tour organized by the Kunisaki Tourism Association (gokunisaki.com). This is a Tendai buddhist temple, which combines aspects of buddhism, shinto and mountain-worship. The complex feels as though it is receding into the moss in the most beautiful way. This is a privately supported temple, so there isn't the scrubbed-clean feeling... More

Futagoji temple is set in beautiful ground. The trees provide great shade and some nice little paths to wander around in. All the different shades of green is speculator, climb every set of stairs you see as it always leads to some hidden scene. I did this on the same day as the Kumano magaibutsu (stone Buddha) and Fukiji temple.... More

I wanted to visit this temple to see the guardian statues that lead up to the main complex. Once we saw the temple guardians, we went up to the main complex. It is pretty expansive. We went on a weekday and there were very few people. It felt like we had the temple all to our selves. There was only... More

This is a beautiful temple. I arrived with friends at 10am so we could write "sutra" together. The head monk gave a lovely introduction to me in English (he lived in the U.S. for 3 years!). Seiza is very difficult to sit in for long (even my local friends struggled), but our experience was overall very positive. After our writing... More

This was the last stop on our Kunasaki Peninsula bus tour. After Magaibutsu we made a complicated climb over, around and through (quite literally – there were at least two tunnels) Mt Futago, the central peak of the peninsula, to Futagoji. We paused for a few photos at the Zaizen bochi cemetery. Eventually we were deposited at a walkway to... More
