What to Expect

Hiraizumi was inscribed on the World Heritage list in 2011.There is a well-preserved group of temples and gardens that were created on Buddhism, especially the thought of Pure Land Buddhism.

We'll visit four popular sites with a loop-line bus.
First, we'll visit Motsu-ji. It has been doubly recognized as a special historic site and special place of scenic beauty.It has a remarkably cultural value.

Hiraizumi cultural Heritage center shows you the whole history of Hiraizumi. It's glorious and sad.You'll be versed in this area,which will make the following sightseeing more enjoyable.

One of the World heritage, Chuson-ji temple is the highlight of this tour.
Its Uniqueness is attributed to its place which is surrounded with beautiful woods and ponds.On the top of the hill the golden hall,konjikido is seated quietly.

Muryokoin-ato used to have great temples in the style of Amida hall of Byodo-in of Uji out side of Kyoto.(Byodo-in is on 10 yen coin) although they are transformed into paddyland,leaving pond remains and fountain stones. It was carefully calculated and built to see sun set directly into the mountain at equinox for worship.

While the Pure Land gardens of Hiraizumi are fashioned from concepts learned from Kyoto's gardens, they also offer a brief glimpse into the influence of ancient Chinese gardens.
These special historic sites are always with scenic beauty.
You'll see historical architecture being harmonized with peripheral natural scenery.
