There are many temples in Japan, especially in Kyoto. But if you want to see something different or makes you surprised of an olden Japan in a more special way, Myoryuji Temple in Ishigawa Prefecture would truly deserve your visit.
You may not only be surprised by the smart structure of the building but also will wander that why Japanese can think that far? It is no doubt that forward-thinking is one of the reasons makes Japan today.
Even though its official name is Myoryuji, literally the “oddly built temple, the ninja temple is more preferred to be called as itself exceptionality. First constructed in the 16th century, the building was moved to its current location in 1643 by Maeda Toshitsune, the warlord who controlled Kaga Fief in present-day Ishikawa.
Because it is an official Buddhist temple, Myoryuji’s ostensible purpose was as a place of worship. In actuality, though, it served as a secret Maeda stronghold. Watch a video
