Things to know

Zuiryuji Temple is a Zen Buddhist temple in Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture. It is also known as Takaokasan, which is the name that can you can find on the famous Sanmon Gate as you enter the temple. The temple was founded in the 17th century and its buildings are prime examples of Edo-period (1600-1868) Buddhist architecture, while also being inspired by the great temples of the Kamakura period (1185-1333). They have been named Japanese national treasures. During special events and seasons, Zuiryuji Temple is open until late at night and illuminated. The colorful lights transform the majestic temple grounds into a mystical space. The moving light projections on the walls playfully incorporate Japanese and Zen Buddhist symbols.
