Makayaji Temple

  • Temples & Shrines
The Makayaji Temple garden has a Heian-period-style design that is unique to eastern Japan. The pond's layout to the gently rolling artificial hills alongside groupings of stones is stunning. This garden dates back to the early Kamakura Period. Other attractions include the wooden sculpture of Senju Kannon ("Thousand-Armed Kannon")—a designated Important Cultural Property—and a wooden statue of the guardian deity Fudo Myo-o. Makayaji Temple is also one of five temples that make up the Kohoku Gozan (The Five Temples North of the Lake).
