The three main attractions on the temple grounds include Goeido Hall, Amidado Hall, and the temple gardens.

Cultural treasures, including surviving masterpieces of architecture, are displayed in these main halls. The Temple garden is known as a “dry” garden, utilizing stones, white sand, trees, and plants to symbolize elements of nature such as mountains, rivers, and the ocean.
