A Beautiful Five-Storied Pagoda Colored With Cherry Blossoms

Honenji Temple is a family temple of Matsudaira, a general of old Takamatsu Clan. The scenery of cherry blossoms coloring the precinct with a five-storied pagoda, is wonderful. Especially, you can see its most beautiful view from the opposite bank of the pond!

A udon noodle restaurant 'Ryuun' in the precinct is very popular. And you can enjoy cherry blossom viewing at Busshozan Park next to Honenji Temple.
