Matcha and milk shaved ice with red bean paste and shiratama dango 😍 Whoever started the combination of matcha + red bean + shiratama must be a genius because they compliment each other so well! 😭
One of the most well-known and accessible of Kochi’s temples, this mountaintop site provides summer visitors with shady precincts and a respite from the heat and humidity. The five-story pagoda and the treasure hall are worth a stop, but the real gem is the temple’s inner garden. Sit and relax on the wooden porch and contemplate the sculpted beauty, which changes with the seasons. Chikurin-ji is easily reached via the MY-YU tourist bus, which offers 50% discounts to foreign visitors.
