Gohyaku-rakan




Chokeiji Temple is situated in Kureha Hills in the suburbs of Toyama City. 500 stone disciples of Buddha are placed side by side quietly on the eastern hillside of the temple. Some of them are standing, and others are sitting. It is said that none of them has the same expression. This area is noted for its cherry blossoms in spring and the colored leaves in fall, which attract many tourists every year.
