Eihoji Temple (虎渓山 永保寺)

This temple was founded in the Kamakura period (1185-1333) by Muso Soseki. Its honorary name Kokeizan comes from how the surrounding mountain scenery resembles China’s Kokei Ravine at Lushan. Eihoji’s garden is superbly beautiful and has been designated a Historic Site and Natural Monument. There are many sights you shouldn’t miss, like the Kaisando and Kannondo, both National Treasures. The principal object of worship, an image of Kanzeon Bosatsu, is a Prefectural Cultural Property. There are also sacred items like an image of Binzuru, a deity with healing powers, and a collection of Sentai Jizo statues.

Review of Kokeizan Eihoji Temple

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/09/03 excellent garden
Kokeizan Eihoji Temple (or Yongbao Temple) is in Gifu Prefecture, it is not far from Nagoya. It will be within 40 minutes of driving from the station. There are not many people, you can enjoy it.
Reviewed:2019/04/04 One of the most beautiful and important Temples outside the major cities
This temple, along with the Ceramic Museum, pottery studios and ateliers, and the many great restaurants and cafes, make Tajimi an excellent stop on your visit to Japan.
Reviewed:2018/03/06 Out of the way but worth it
Eihoji Garden was designed by a renowned garden master and Zen monk, and it shows. Bit of a hassle to get there, but worth the trouble for true fans. It has been listed in Hidden Gardens of Japan...

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
