    Nice enchanted walk, buy fish food at their gift shop and be prepared to be followed! Kids (2&3 yr old) enjoyed this so much. Remove shoes before heading inside the temple and light an incense.

    Hidden in the Valley of the Temples, this is a replica from Japan. This is a great place to just hang out and relax, maybe eat your packed lunch before heading back out to the beaches.

    Well worth the $3. Even if you've been before, the light here always changes the character of the grounds and a repeat visit is never a waste of time.

    One of the most beautiful places we've ever visited! Take some quiet time to absorb the beauty and tranquility around you....and don't forget to ring the bell. :-)

    This temple is a replica of a 900-year-old Buddhist place of worship at Uji in Kyoto prefecture of Japan.

    I agree with the others on the $1 bag of bird/fish food. Feeding the doves out of your hand is a lot of fun! The bag of food is generous and will last a while

    Admission $3 adults, $2 seniors, $1 12y and under. There are koi, peacocks, and black swans on property.

    The temple is located behind the cemetaries, in the Valley of the Temples. There may be some mosquitoes here.

    Such a serene spot. I could go here in a nice quiet day and just relax. A lot of tourist today but it was still peaceful.

    I agree with everyone else, spend $1 to feed the fish and birds, it's a lot of fun. The birds will eat right from your hand if you let them.

    It's located inside a cemetery, but it's really cool to see

    Just $1.00 for a big bag of fish and bird food. Guaranteed fun and excitement when the fish jump for their food.

    Feeding the koi is standard stuff, but having the birds land on your wrist and eat out of your hand is FUN!
