Anraku-ji temple is only open to the public for a few weeks in May and November when blossoms in its garden are in full bloom and when autumn colours the leaves in a appealing beauty.

Disciples of priest Honen, Anraku and Juren built a dojo for chanting a prayer to Amida-Nyorai Buddha. They allowed all the people, including women, to be able to practice buddhism and chant sutras which was reserved for the privileged, aristocratic class at that time.
