On April 13, 2012 Noriko and Toshiji Fukuda took us to see Ioji Temple in which Noriko has some family connections. The temple and surrounding buildings are quite beautiful as are the grounds and views of the surrounding countryside.
Many of the buildings have thatched roofs and are very old. We were also allowed inside and a lady in charge acted as a guide and also aided us in prayers. Ioji is a quiet temple not normally seen by tourists and is known for being a healing temple.
Photographs can be seen on Picasa at Ioji Temple.
