Known for its stunning moss-covered entrance gate, Honen-in temple has plenty to see. While the Main Hall is only open twice a year (April 1st – 17th for Camellia season and November 1st-7th for Autumn leaves) the gardens are known for the beautiful ponds and sand mounds which offer purity to those who walk between them.
