  • I had the Kosanji Temple marked on my maps as a must when I rode my bike on the Shimanami Kaido. I was really looking forward to visiting the temple but the entrance price really threw me off...  more »
  • Interesting temple along the Shimanami Kaido. The 1000 Buddha cave worth a look. Entry is a little more expensive than other temples.  more »
  • Pleasantly surprise by the entry charges. But it is definitely worth paying. Never had such pleasant experience since a long long time. Thousand Buddha Cave still give me goosebumps thinking about it.
  • I am usually a cheapskate and don't like to pay to get into places. This place, however, is worth it. Pretty amazing collection of wooden!(not concrete) buildings. Sure, the buildings are replicates of older buildings that may have existed somewhere and that no longer exist, but that does not lessen the impressiveness of the buildings in the complex. Amazing craftsmanship. Worth a visit, and the price to get in - in my opinion.
