Temple
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
烤椰子As soon as I entered the door, I was shocked by the colorful colors. I have to admit that the red leaves here are more stunning than those seen in Kyoto. Meicheng is like this, and there are few tourists, it is impossible to describe the love for Maoyue Temple in words. The Pure Land Garden here, an open water area surrounded by the same open lawn, has a wonderful feeling of combining the ancient charm of Kyoto temples and the grass of Nara Park. In short, the Maoyue Temple in Hongyeji must not be missed.

烤椰子Here you can experience the fun of milking cows, horseback riding, and various outdoor activities. The tickets are not expensive. When I went there, it was Sunday. Many families bring their children here. It is a paradise for parents and children. The fresh milk produced on the farm is very distinctive, thick, very sticky, and a bit like yogurt. Foreign tourists come here, of course, for "Koiwai Farm-Honzakura". With Iwate Mountain as the background, there is an Edo-higan cherry tree in the middle of the verdant pasture. Near the "Kamimaru Cowshed", you need to follow the road from the farm ranch It takes 20 minutes to reach the card on foot.
