Climbing the mossy stone stairs just outside the town centre of Katayamazu Onsen, you will find yourself at Aizenji Temple which offers excellent views of Mt. Hakusan and Lake Shibayama. The temple is also affectionately called 'Oyakushi-san', as the principal image is of Yakushi-Nyorai, the Buddha that cures illnesses and guards onsen. Pray to the onsen guardian in the refreshing natural surroundings.
