Story & Recommendation
A national treasure in a spacious area overlooking an impressive pagoda
Ninna-ji Temple has spacious grounds and been registered as a world heritage site. At the entrance, there is a huge gate and dramatic Niozou statues to the left and right of the gate. Within the grounds are buildings designated as national treasures and important cultural assets. From a beautiful garden with a pond surrounded by trees, you can gaze at the backdrop of a five-storied pagoda. From the beginning to middle of April, the famous Omuro-zakura (cherry blossoms) are at their peak, and the temple is bustling with many visitors. There are many sights to see at Ninna-ji Temple. Please enjoy the views and the buildings with their charm built up over their long history.
