Konpukuji Temple

Temple
This is a temple connected to Yosa Buson, one of the representative haiku poets of the Edo period. Highlights of the grounds include the monument, portrait and grave of the poet. Matsuo Basho is said to have stayed here, and there is indeed a thatched hut named Basho-an. This was restored by Yosa Buson, who idolized Basho. The garden’s satsuki azaleas in full bloom in early summer is a beautiful sight.

    I visited this temple for Busons tomb. It is not as famous as Shisendo, but quiet and lovely temple. The pity is that the season of red leaves had been over.
