What people are saying:

Not particularly knowledgeable about the history and origins of this place, just knowing that it is a more representative place of a certain Japanese religious culture, this place is still very easy to find, if you have the opportunity to see.

Additional Information

Introduction

Nishi Hongan-ji Temple is the main court of the Jodo Shinshu Hongan Temple School, and is a world cultural heritage site. It was called "Nishi Hongan-ji Temple" since 1272, when Shinran's daughter moved Shinran's body back to Dongshan Valley. There are five famous buildings in this temple, which is a classic model of ancient Japanese architecture. Every November, the ginkgo trees in the temple become very beautiful, making a walk through a path full of golden ginkgo leaves a quite romantic one.
