A calm, inland bay spreads out in front of the gates of this temple, which is located in a bountiful, natural, environment with a striking view. The large, well-kept grounds of Nyoi-Ji Temple is covered in various flowers, trees, and wild plants, its beauty ever-changing from early spring until autumn. You are free to explore within the temple gates. In spring, around April, about 10,000 bulbs of “Mitsuba Tsutsuji (3-leaved azalea)” flowers that are native to this natural environment blossom simultaneously, attracting many visitors.
The “flower sermon” by the Nyoi-Ji Temple monk is also popular. The Higiri Fudo-son Festival is held in the spring, and in summer is the Sen-nichi-e Festival.
