“Where is the temple which is the most impressive in the temple which you have seen so far?”
My answer is “Sanjusangen-do Temple”.
The highlight of Sanjusangen-do Temple is 1,001 wooden standing statues of Senju-Kannon which is enshrined into the main hall of a Buddhist temple.
This scenery is beyond a doubt the best part.
Each wooden standing statues of Senju-Kannon have a different face.
Therefore, it is said that there is an image resembling the person who wants to meet by all means.
In addition, Sanjusangen-do Temple is appointed in Michelin green guide ★★★(best rank).
