Daiganji - Review

The Daiganji Temple overlooking the Onoseto Strait is one of the lesser known worship houses, since it is hidden behind Hatsukaichi. The temple complex is more like a square or park where you will find a traditional gate, a number of statues of Goddess Brenzaiten and Buddha. Dating back to 1200’s, the Daiganji Temple houses the wooden Buddha statue, statue of Afudan and the Yakushi Buddha statues. The temple is among the three major Benzaitens enshrined with the Itsukushiama Shrine. Another intriguing feature of the temple is the 18 metre tall Kuonmatsu.

Daiganji, Hatsukaichi Reviews

  • Nice shrine. Just 5min walk from the miyajima shrine. Surprisingly, it's unpopular, so quite empty.

  • Essential visit if you come to the island. Would be better when the tide is in but oh well.

  • A rather unassuming temple (especially seeing as it's placed right next door to one of the most incredible shrines). There's a monk who chants and beats a drum at certain times in the day, which is rather nice to listen to.

  • Nice

  • Georgeous
