Located deep in the mountains of Ibusuki City, the southernmost part of the Satsuma Peninsula, Seiryu-ji Temple was opened in 1990 to spread the teachings of Kobo-Daishi, also known as Kukai, the founder of the Shingon School of Buddhism. Go through the front approach and pass through the Nio-mon Gate, and you will see a splendid Japanese garden and a grand temple building. From the interior colors of the main building to the garden, almost everything in this temple was made by the hands of believers and monks.

Many people visit this temple also from abroad to seek the serene atmosphere in the building with the Buddha statues. It is a perfect place to get away from everyday bustle and stress, enjoying the subtle sound of leaves, pleasant voices of birds, and clean air.

The temple also has a hall open to the public for "shakyo", a religious training involving the of copying Buddhist sutras using a brush pen. It will be a great opportunity for you to calm your mind and experience Japanese culture.

The Shingon Buddhism Fudosan Seiryuji Temple
Open hours: 9:00-17:00
Entrance fee: Adults 500 yen / Children 200 yen
