This was listed as a "must see" in our guidebook, and I agree that it is an impressive temple. It expands to include other areas to walk through, small shrines and statues that are interesting to see. My three teenagers enjoyed burning incense and making wishes in the main building. Definitely a memorable experience, enhanced by the beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom in April! Many people came in traditional Japanese kimonos - maybe for photo shoots? - and this was interesting to see as well.
