Rurikoji Temple

Reviewed By veronica59

Yamaguchi is not really on the westerners' tourist trail in Japan, but if you have time the town and its attractions are well worth visiting. Take the Shin-kan-sen to Shin-Yamaguschi Station, change on to the link JR train to Yamaguchi itself, and then bus to the temple and pagoda. The beautiful park in which the fabulous pagoda is so exquisitely set is a perfect example of Japanese gardens and architecture. The pagoda is a 5-tier wonder, and the Rurikoji temple on the other side of the small lake from the pagoda is a classic example of Japanese Buddhist temples but much simpler than some of those you might see in, say, Kyoto. You need to experience the peace and purity of this place. Yamaguchi was one of the Japanese cities which, in the 16th century, experienced the cultural and religious influence of Christian missionaries, led by St Francis Xavier. Despite later centuries of persecution, Christianity survived here and today there is a gorgeous white Catholic church dedicated to St Francis Xavier which is also well worth a visit. Walk along the pretty riverside which, in Spring, is lined with pink cherry-blossom.
