Loved this special place. So much respectful history here. Doesn't matter if you can't speak or understand Japanese. You're not permitted to take photos inside the temple, which is understandable. Definitely recommend going here. Allow an hour for the tour and you can book.
I really enjoyed this temple. There’s nothing to do with ninjas here. The building has been constructed with many tricks and traps in order to protect the Maeda Family when they were visiting the temple. The tour touches on most of the main areas but there are many parts that are not accessible to the general public. The tea room is very nice. The seppuku room is a bit grim... Absolutely five stars.
Really interesting place and despite no English guiding it's easy to understand thanks to the leaflet you get. Unbelievably busy though!!
Beautiful detail intricate. Fun. Good explanation in English guide book. Good for the small and not so tall.
You are guided through the Temple be nice Japanese people. But the tour is in Japanese. As English speaking your get a leaflet. It wasn't as interesting as I'd thought.
