Daianzenji Temple大安禅寺

Temple

All the temple buildings including the main hall were designated as National Important Cultural Properties in 2008. This temple is famous for its vegetarian cuisine using seasonal ingredients such as wild and farmed vegetables, seaweed and grains. Reservations are accepted for groups of 10 or more and it is possible to combine a meal with courses in zazen (seated meditation) and shakyo (sutra copying), for example. This temple, where you can sightsee, participate and eat, is also the 10th stop for collecting amulets on the Hokuriku 33 Kannon Pilgrimage.

          Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
