Saidai-ji Temple

  • Tourist attractions

When the temple was first founded in the year 765, it had as many as 110 buildings. However, the temple went into temporary decline due to fire and other misfortunes. Today, simple yet outstanding buildings such as the Hondo (main building), Aizen-do, Shio-do, and Shuho-kan have been reconstructed. The temple is famous for its tea ceremony held every spring and autumn called the Ochamori-shiki that serves tea in huge bowls.
