Atami Ioji Temple

Fun and interesting Buddhist statues

Just down the road from Atami station, Ioji is a small, pleasant modern temple, worth stopping off at on your way into town for its collection of interesting statues.

There are lots of cute, chubby little Buddha cherubs, a splendid assembly of deities by the bottom of the steps to the main hall, and a radiant golden Kannon, the Buddhist goddess of mercy, watching over everyone.
