As the name suggests, this temple is located in a bamboo grove. After climbing the stone steps, a beautiful five-storied pagoda can be seen amidst a forest of green.
There are many cultural properties that shouldn't be missed, such as the five-storied pagoda and the Buddha statue which is also a designated National Important Cultural Property.
The garden inside is a designated National Place of Scenic Beauty where visitors can try copying sutras or just relax in the peaceful atmosphere.
In autumn, this place is famous for its foliage.
On the way to the temple is Godaisan Park, which has a spot with a good view of the Kochi cityscape.
