Travel Guide - Jizo-in Temple (Take-no-Tera)


Jizo-in Temple is a small temple that is only a few minutes walk south of Saiho-ji Temple in the same atmospheric bamboo groves. The temple, founded in 1368, is known as "Take-no-Tera (a temple of bamboo)" because about a half of the temple grounds are filled with bamboo trees.
Even though Jizo-in Temple does not have any buildings and treasures that are particularly famous or valuable, the temple is still worth visiting for its lovely moss garden which is a great place to sit and think.
