Review of Saifuku-ji Temple

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/11/27 Not a good time to visit the temple now
It was too late to see the red leaves or cosmos field and the temple is under reconstruction at the moment. Still its interesting old woody temple to see.

敦賀の庭園が紅葉がイチオシのお寺ですが、まだ早かった見たいです。片鱗は見えましたが、私には今の状態では庭園の良さが分かりませんでした。センスないのかな?
Reviewed:2018/11/11 寂しい場所です
寂しい場所にあるお寺は多いけど
ここは寺そのものがうら淋しい

でも訪れる人は多いようです
私が気に入ったのは
書院と本堂の間にある庭園です
手入れが十分とは言えませんが
紅葉が見事でした!

          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.
