Since the Kannon in the various villages are protected by the hands of the people living in those communities, visits basically involve advance reservation. Please call to make a reservation at least one week in advance. Reservations are not needed at Doganji Kannondo
, Keisoku-ji Temple
, and Shakudo-ji Temple
. Please go to these temples directly while being mindful of visiting hours and possible closed days.
Most of the people in the community who support visitors to the temples do not actually live on the temple site. Thus, please be very careful about minding the reservation time. Furthermore, since many temples are located in villages, make sure to visit them quietly so as not to disturb the village residents. Confirm when making the reservation if car or bicycle parking is available.
The temple is a holy place. Rather than just looking through your camera’s viewfinder or screen, why not try and calmly appreciate the time you have to face Kannon?
