    At Rengeji, you will be able to see a small but beautiful garden with a pond at the center and lovely autumn leaves. This spot is a well-kept secret!
    A little way away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this temple is a place where you can quietly pass the time.
    On a rainy day, the moisture makes the greenery and moss in the temple grounds looks even more beautiful.
