Nison-in Temple

 Overview

Nison-in is a temple of the Tendai sect of Buddhism that has been around for more than 1,200 years and is surrounded by beautiful scenery.  

 This temple, which spreads out at the foot of Mt. Ogura and is mentioned in “Hyakunin Isshu”, is famous as a famous place for autumn leaves, and the scenery of each season is superb.  

 It is called ‘Nison-in Temple’ because it enshrines two Buddhas, Shaka Nyorai and Amida Nyorai.
