 Mimurotoji Temple in Uji

The 10th temple of the Saigoku Kannon pilgrimage, Mimurotoji is situated on a lush green hillside in the north-eastern part of Uji City. After walking up the gentle slope to the temple's main gate and then ascending the long stone stairway to the Hondo Main Hall, one is greeted by the gorgeous Chinese-influenced architecture of the Main Hall, a picturesque lotus pond, and the scent of burning incense. It is a scene which may enable you to imagine what the Pure Land is like.
