Must see. Impressive temple, rare 5 story pagoda, and gorgeous moss and tree covered grounds to explore. Light an incense and make a wish or send some good intentions out into the world. Make a day of it with the botanic garden and Godaisan park

I really enjoyed this temple and the surrounding area. The road leading to it is pretty narrow. I think you'll need a car or the willingness to walk a long way in order to visit this temple. This was a nice place to meditate and pray.

We took the My-Yu bus to visit this Temple 31 of the Shikoku 88 temples pilgrimage tour. Impressive, awesome temple. Do not miss the 5 story pagoda.

There is a special exhibition of paintings to celebrate the 1300th anniversary of the Temple. The sound system is bearly audible, perhaps to enjoy only in solitude. The little garden nearly looks like a painting, too. The Temple itself has nice setting. A pity the great Buddha images were cordoned off so one can only seen them from quite a distance. The other Buddha images are outdoor, and one can see them closely.

Very beautiful shrine along the Shikoku pilgrimage route. A little hard to access with bus timing but otherwise a nice place to visit.
