Although not part of the Koto Sanzan Temple Trio (all Tendai Buddhist temples), most visitors also visit Eigenji together with the Koto Sanzan temples. Accessible by bus taking 30-40 min. from Yokaichi Station on the Omi Railway Line or from Hyakusaiji. 4 comments

The temple is built along the Echi River. Admission 500 yen. For the elderly, these many, but not impossible, steps might be difficult. At least we can soon enjoy the fall colors in Nov.
