Natadera Temple


Natadera is a Buddhist temple in Komatsu, Ishikawa Prefecture. The temple is located at the foot of Mount Hakusan, an important source of the pottery stone used in Kutani ware porcelain clay. The temple is said to have been founded in 717 by the Buddhist priest Taicho. The pilgrimage route that passes through the vast temple grounds is known as the Kigan Yusenkyo—named after its unusual rock outcroppings—and is a popular destination for autumn foliage. Natadera is home to two designated Places of Scenic Beauty and seven nationally designated Important Cultural Properties, including the temple’s main hall (hondo), which is built directly onto a cave.

The special exhibition at Natadera will feature displays in the usually off-limits shoin study and gardens (Important Cultural Properties) and in the precincts and forest along the Kigan Yusenkyo approach route.
