Registered as a World Heritage Site, this venerable temple is said to bring a gook luck particularly for your health.

Visitors from around the world come and pray for their health in body and mind at this temple which is dedicated to Buddha believed to save people from sickness. The temple is also popular among foreign visitors because it offers a sutra-copying activity, a part of Buddhist training and a unique experience of Japanese culture. Please note that the East Tower ( see the picture, right) is under restoration until April 2020.
