Enryaku-ji Temple

The head temple of the Tendai-shu sect established in 788 by Saicho, a Buddhist monk and ambassador.The temple consists of three areas and more than 200 temple buildings dotting Mt.Hiei, which is about 848m high.

Enryaku-ji temple is registered as a world inheritance. It has many national tresure. Many great monks, like Honen, Shinnran, Eisai,Dougen, and Nichiren appeared from here. So Mt. Hiei is called the mother mountain of Buddhism.

 

If you want to go there, you can go by car. From Otsu city, it takes about 40 minutes. I can drive you.
