Makayaji Temple (摩訶耶寺)
A temple located in Makaya, Mikkabi Town, Kita Ward, Hamamatsu City. Founded as Shintatsuji Temple on Mt. Tonmakuyama by Gyoki, it was transferred to its current location at the end of the Heian Period. The main object of worship is the hidden evil-defeating Sho-Kannon bodhisattva which has been passed down since the Nara Period, and the temple has been revered for its warding off of evil since ancient times. The precinct's seated-view-form pond garden Makayaji Temple Garden is famous as a representative example of feudal Japanese gardens.

With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
