TypeSoto-shu Sect of Zen Buddhism Temple
AddressDaigo 1571, Daigo-cho, Kuji county, Ibaraki Prefecture
DescriptionThe Eigen-Ji Temple is also known as “Momiji-dera” which means “temple of Momiji maple tree”.
In 1864, most of the buildings were destroyed by fire caused by the Tengu-to Rebellion.
The current Hondo main building was rebuilt in 1953.
The temple is located on a hill, and it has a grandstand view of the Daigo town.
I went this temple on November 27 of 2014, I could enjoy so beautiful scenes of the autumn colors.
