A little peaceful haven just outside the city. We got there from the hop on/off bus. A gorgeous traditional Japanese house and Buddhist temple and garden to look around.

We were there at 12pm, one hour before the opening time, so didn't have chance to go inside, but were still able to walk around the garden. Was nicely maintained, but very small and surrounding by busy roads and buildings. Which is really a shame. For us 20 minutes was long enough and wouldn't rush back there.

Everything is in the title. The place is a breath in the middle of the city. If you appreciate a little bit Japanese culture you will definitely travel there for a short while!

I visited this temple as a part of day tour in Dusseldorf and was impressed by the clean and peaceful environment. The architecture of the temple along with garden attracted me. Although the main entrance to temple was closed, we can gain entry from the other side. This temple is bit in residential area and might be bit difficult to... More

You can reach here easily if you take the Hop on Hop off bus and you will be amazed. Like being in the real Japan for a while. We came here in autumn and the trees colors were awesome... pity the little lake is dry and maybe the cost of visiting the little apartment and temple is exaggerated but I... More

A very Japanese feeling once you set the foot inside. It is well kept and mostly empty therefore quite a nice place for a peaceful quite walk. The temple was closed and the size of the garden is very small which looks otherwise through the photos uploaded by the reviewers

What a great place, even in winter. This is on the red bus tour and really worth a visit. Make sure you view the house and temple. They have a big music hall for functions and display a lot of art in exhibitions. Very helpful reception staff. A must.
