“A Ginko that deserves the reverence it inspires”

Takayama Betsuin Shorenji Temple
Reviewed 31 May 2014

The temple itself is fairly typical, but worth a visit--and it's on your way to many delightful places in Takayama--you know, like the wonderful bridges, each of a different color. The ginko in the courtyard is twelve feet in diameter and has accumulated a personality all its own.

This was one of the emptiest places I visited in Takayama and very nice for it as well. There's a large gatehouse with a guard who smiles when you come through, two well laid out gardens and the main hall. It's much the same as all the other temples in town but I liked the vending machine for Buddhist tracts.
