Enjoy a moment of peaceful reflection in the Zen gardens of Komyozen-ji Temple. Replete with standing stones and carefully raked gravel, the gardens reputedly date back to the 12th century. You can see a simple garden in front of the temple, but it's really worth paying the entrance fee to see the quiet and picturesque rear garden. Here, you'll feel cut off from the outside world, surrounded by maple trees (some apparently 300 years old), Japanese Buddhist sculptures, and islands of moss.

It is necessary from the station to go immediately to this temple on the street Of Kokukhaku, or by running along the super-popular pedestrian main street to the temples to turn right. There are almost no visitors here. To walk around the temple you need to give the minister a stand-up coin. The temple is concise and cosy. Give and admire the quiet beauty.

The stone garden is certainly less famous than the one similar in Kyoto, Ryonji, but the appearance is similar to how similar stones and pebbles can be. :-) It is built of white, slightly gray gravel of a strictly defined size and fifteen stones. Garden of stones, clean ...

The garden of the dry mountain water and the garden of the moss in the back are good, and there are a lot of people in Dazaifu Tenmangu shrine, but there are few people and the person can spend quietly here in the place where the person knows. It is a hidden spot of Dazaifu.
parts of this temple were closed and you cannot get your goshuincho stamp here, but the gardens alone make up for it. komyozenji has one of the only rock gardens on kyushu, and its stunning in the fall. the man who was working there was very polite and helpful.
Its a good place for you to experience the Japanese culture nd feeling of watching the maples, juz sit and watch quietly.
