In the Yagoto area of Nagoya is a small temple and garden complex. There is a five story pagoda and other buildings scattered around. The smell of incense floats through the air, and if the time is right, the chanting of monks can be heard. The grounds are not busy, making it a peaceful place to relax and wander. A little cafe sells ice cream cones, and twice a month there is small flea market.

  1. Yagoto is one of the places I work in Nagoya. I’d never even known this was here. I’ll have to check it out. I usually just get off the subway and go straight to work. I’ve never looked around. Thanks so much.
