SpotNison-in

Nison-in is about a three-minute walk North from Rakushisha. This Tendai denomination Sanmonha Buddhist temple is said to have begun when the Showa Era (834-848, the other Showa Era) Emperor Saga ordered Jikaku Daishi to its erection. Noted as a spot for autumn leaves - gorgeous crimson foliage flood your mind. They are found lining its path extending inward through its large outer gate. It is also known for its spring cherry blossoms - certainly a place you will want to visit with the changes each new season brings. The main hall, a creation of the late Heian Era, is designated an important national cultural property. The image of Buddha/ Amitabha Tathagata is enshrined here.
