Kokozan Zuiryuji Temple 国宝 高岡山瑞龍寺

A beautiful temple exemplifying seventeenth-century Zen architecture

Zuiryuji Temple was built in the mid-seventeenth century to enshrine Maeda Toshinaga, the second head of the ruling Kaga Maeda family and founder of the city of Takaoka. The halls of the temple complex are arranged around a central courtyard and most are connected by wooden cloisters. The structures are regarded as excellent examples of early Edo-period Zen architecture and several have been designated as National Treasures.
The temple halls feature ceiling paintings and beautiful Buddhist statues. On Sundays, early morning zazen meditation is offered in the meditation hall. Reservations are not needed, but participants are asked to call ahead to confirm the schedule.
