Eihoji was established in 1313 and is a Zen Buddhist temple in Tajimi City of Gifu Prefecture. Associated with this temple is a school for Zen Buddhist monks. The beautiful and vast Japanese gardens and ponds with Koi fishes are the center of attraction. A small bridge across the pond connects the garden area with the temple building. Each season adorn this temple and its surroundings in the most beautiful way. Even though the temple is only opened occasionally, many visitors flew here especially during autumn and winter. Situated between dense forests and mountain ranges with the Toki river flowing alongside, it is a relaxing area for the mind, being far away from the city.

I came to Japan in 2012. I admire the Japanese culture, love the places, food and everything in Japan. Looking forward to discover new experiences in this nation.
