Respite from the Buzz of the City
Natadera Temple in Komatsu City, founded in 717 by priest Taicho, is a perfect place for those looking for beautiful temple architecture and gardens without the big crowds. This time-honored temple has a number of halls including a main shrine and treasure hall, a bell tower, and a three-storied pagoda, plus forests, ponds, caves, and rocky hills. The ground is covered with lush green moss and seasonal flowers add colour to the scenery. In autumn, maple trees turn beautiful shades of yellow and red.
