About this sight

Fuki-Ji is the oldest wooden building in Kyushu and a designated National Treasure. The temple hosts a statue of Amida Nyorai, the Buddhist deity who invites all believers into paradise.

The relaxed and tranquil atmosphere of Fuki-ji, surrounded by nature makes it the perfect spot to sit and take a moment. If you are interested, the temple provides a one-hour mini Zen meditation practice that visitors are welcome to attend.

Legend has it that the Amidha Nyorai statue was constructed from the wood of a single kaya Japanese nutmeg-yew tree.
