Nariaij Temple

Nariaiji
Temple

Nariaiji temple, the 28th temple of the 33 Temples of Kansai Kannon Pilgrimage, was founded by the order of the Emperor Monmu in 704. This temple has a long history or tradition and possesses numerous cultural properties and it’s principal image is Sho Kanzeon Bosatsu (Avalokitesvara-bodhisattva) . It’s surroundings are rich in nature. In spring, rhododendrons are beautiful, and in autumn, the changing leaves are wonderful. The combination of this temple’s Five-Storied pagoda and autumn foliage is very photogenic!
You can get there by “Nariai Mountain Bus” operated by us. The view from the windows of the bus, which follows the steep mountain ridges is also fantastic! We hope you visit.
The bus stop is in the Amanohashidate-kasamatsu Park and the ride time is about 7 minutes.
