Zenkoji is a famous temple, and its main hall is designated as a national treasure. Some say they want to visit Zenkoji-temple at least once in their lifetime. So it has had a long history of pilgrimage. After visiting Zenkoji, I would like you to enjoy a nice lunch and feel relaxed!

What to Expect

You can visit Zenkoji, and get in touch with some Buddhist cultures and its serene atmosphere there. Also, you can enjoy strolling in the streets near Zenkoji where you would do some shopping. After that, you will have lunch at a local restaurant. I will recommend steamed chestnut rice, or soba (Japanese buckwheat noodles). Some have allergies to buckwheat powder. So if you feel anxious about that, I recommend that you choose steamed chestnut rice.
