The temple was closed when I came, but that gave me a chance to enjoy the grounds in peace and quiet. There was serenity to that and I’ll be coming back.

Akishino Temple is off of the normal tourist path. It is a lovely, small, quiet temple with an impressive moss garden. It is only about a kilometer from Saidaiji Station, on the west side of Nara City.

A lovely off-the-beaten-path spot. Well kept grounds, beautiful moss-filled ‘forest’, and impressive historic Buddhist statues in the main hall. No English signs or pamphlet.
