Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We passed by this amazing structure and we stopped to pay a visit and what a surprise. Guided by a half Australian and half Japanese member of the organization, we visited the inside of this magnificent temple and heard about this relatively new religion. Quite fascinating.

Perched on a hill above Takayama this impressive building deserved to be explored! A quick wander up the hill and we were allowed into the temple. It’s a fairly modern building but truly impressive, not least in size. You can’t actually do much once in but it is visually imposing.
I have no idea about the faith that is practiced here but will do some research- the staff were very friendly and even offered me a cup of sake on the way out!

Go with an open mind to receive Light and it may change your life. This is a deep yet very simple practice for anyone who wants to experience Happiness which is Health, Harmony and Prosperity. Look into the Primary Course and everything in life gets better. I have been going to Sukyo Mahikari in Phoenix, AZ for about 15 years before I took the class and became a member. I am happy to welcome anyone to our Phoenix Center.

This is a biased review as I'm a member of this spiritual organisation. This building is the World Shrine for the Creator God and it welcomes people of all faiths. Members consists of people from various faiths, and participation in Mahikari is complementary to all existing religious traditions. Members learn to give an energy from the palm of the hand (Divine Light), and this energy nourishes the soul and enables people to experience a better spiritual, mental and physical state. If you have some time to spare, its definitely worth a visit, but the building may be closed to the public depending on what events are happening there for members.

I spotted this whilst on my way to the folk village, it was an amazing sight, its huge and the golden roof really makes it stand out, very different to anything else I'd seen in Japan

we went to this because we could see it from our hotel room.
when we got there by bicycle there was a security who helped show us were to go.
the inside of the shrine was a must to see and the people are friendly and helpful.

Most fascinating structure of new religion. Worth a look around. The fish tank alter I have never seen before. The staff and few worshippers were kind and interested.

Dedicated to religion around the world, this temple only has ceremonies once a month during the warmer months. It seems a shame to have this wonderful infrastructure largely vacant but I have to respect the motivation behind building it. It's not a must see, but it's interesting nonetheless. It certainly dominates the skyline.

This shrine is called The Main World Shrine , Suza. It is opened to the public everyday except on some special occasions when ceremonies are held exclusively for members only. Opening prayer is at 9 a.m. and the public is welcomed to offer prayers to the Creator God, Su. Entrance is free.
Beautiful building on top of a holy mountain. Upon entering the main hall, you can feel the serenity, peacefulness and positive vibes.

I consider visiting Suza a 'must,,' and I have visited there many times over the past 22 years. This shrine is for anyone who wishes to offer prayers to God. It may seem overwhelming at first, but it is the shrine consecrated to God, and thousands of people from all over the world make a spiritual pilgrimage there throughout the year. Visitors are welcome! This is no 'new world cult.'
