Guangming Zen Temple was founded by the monk Tie Niu Yuanxin from the Sugawara family. It is especially famous for heathers and red leaves. Kyushu's only stone courtyard with "dry landscapes" is also here. The deep part of the courtyard shows the land with moss, the white sand shows the sea, and the front courtyard has the word "light" arranged by stones.
The very beautiful temple, especially the dry landscape at the door, is quite large. The friends who went with me didn't understand what it was, so he thought it was a pile of sand, but it was actually a landscape painting. Recommend,
Guangming Zen Temple is a very characteristic traditional Japanese temple. It has been eaten a hundred years after it was built. Several buildings inside are left over from history. You can choose to taste the fast food. Several staff members are volunteers to help.
The best time to come to Guangming Temple is when the red leaves are flourishing in autumn. At that time there will be the most tourists, so it is recommended that you go early and miss the highest peak of tourists, otherwise you will not be able to take good pictures. There is a place in the courtyard like a beach, and the trees are covered with moss. It is said that sand and stone represent the sea and moss represents the continent. It symbolizes that the scenery in this yard embraces everything in the world
This temple is an ancient temple with a long history. Some trees inside have a guarded feeling.
Guangming Zen Temple was established in the Kamakura period and is commonly known as "Moss Temple." It was founded by a monk named Tie Niu Yuanxin from the Sugawara family.

The lush forests in the temple, the red-leaf trees more than 300 years old and the various moss of more than 50 species are very famous in Kyushu. The deep part of the courtyard shows the land with moss, the white sand shows the sea, and the front courtyard has the word "light" arranged by stones. In the season of red leaves, fallen leaves fall on the white sand, and you can see a very poetic scenery.
