The elegant garden is a must-see, and a nationally designated place of scenic beauty
This ancient temple is located in the north of the Oku-Hamanako region, in Iinoya, Inasa-cho, Kita-ku, Hamamatsu-shi. Said to have been founded by Gyoki Bosatsu in 733 AD, Ryotan-ji Temple is famous for having been for forty generations the family temple of the Ii family, which produced such notable sons as Naomasa Ii, one of the Tokugawa Shitenno (four famous generals who served Tokugawa) and Naosuke Ii, chief minister in the late Tokugawa period. Within the temple's approximately 33,000-square-meter precincts, visitors will find precious buildings like the main hall, which has been designated as part of the prefecture's cultural property, and also Ryotanji Garden, which was created by Enshu Kobori and is a nationally designated place of scenic beauty. This is a place to come to enjoy beautiful scenery which is in harmony with nature in each of the four seasons.
