This temple is in Unzen-Amakusa National Park, part of Kamiamakusa City, Kumamoto Prefecture. It's the twenty first temple on the Kyushu pilgrimage to 33 sites sacred to the bodhisattva Kannon. It's well known for its Matsushima-Jiko Kannon image that's said to help believers maintain a clear mind as they age. The head priest plays guitar while delivering his sermons. These have become quite popular and even draw tours from beyond Kyushu.

Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
