Raizan Sennyoji Daihioin Temple 雷山千如寺大悲王院

A flamboyant temple

Not far from the artists' studios of Itoshima is the Raizan Sennyoji Daihioin Buddhist temple, which has a few surprises in store for you!

The momiji star

Take the opportunity to take a walk in the Shinji Zen garden , a perfect example of a traditional Japanese garden, inaugurated during the Muromachi era. Many maple trees are present in the garden, which makes it an essential spot during the Japanese autumn , in order to be able to admire the momiji in all their splendor from mid-November. Don't miss the majestic 400-year-old maple tree: it is said to have been planted by Kuroda Tsugutaka, the sixth lord of the Kuroda clan, in 1573. It has even been declared a historical monument by the Fukuoka prefecture. You will rarely have the opportunity to contemplate such an old, but no less colorful tree. In the fall, he becomes the real star of the Raizan Sennyoji Daihioin complex.
