Motsuji Temple Jul 12, 2009
Mutsuji was once one of the main temple complex’s in all of Japan but most of the complex have been destroyed during time. Today only a little bit of the original complex is still intact. All that remains is a bit of the old earthworks and a bit of the foundation. But even though the original temple is long gone it is still a nice place to visit.

The main hall has been reconstructed in 1988 and is a pretty big structure - but you can see it is quite a modern building. In addition to the main hall you will find a couple of other buildings on the temple area - some of them have been reconstructed a few hundred years ago.

The main draw at the temple complex is not the buildings - but the garden area which is build up around a big pond in the middle with lots of iris’s which were in bloom in July when I went to the temple.
