Ishikawa Temple by Mount Hakusan

Ishikawa Temple by Mount Hakusan

Founded in 717, Natadera Temple by Mt. Hakusan is the head temple of the Shingon Buddhist Sector founded by Priest Taicho. A scared place for prayer, the temple is a place to worship nature, and is surrounded by many cedar trees and camellia flowers hundreds of years old. There's also the incense burning pavilion, 3-story pagoda, the bell tower, the study room, and the rebuilt main shrine. Although the temple had been destroyed in three wars, in 1640 it was reconstructed and now has seven buildings listed as important cultural properties, two locations marked as places of scenic beauty, and even received a Michelin star for the temple's beautiful scenery. Thanks to the vast amount of scenic areas, many come to the temple to both pray and appreciate the beauty any time of year. The foliage is considered to be at it's finest during the autumn season, when the rock formations and crisp leaves interact for a breathtaking view.
