Daioji Temple (Watari Date Family Temple) is one of the only open temples in Hokkaido, where you can enter the sanctum and experience Buddhist practices, such as Zen meditation and copying a sutra by hand. Daioji was originally a private temple for one of Date City’s founding families. Today, it exhibits a range of spiritual and everyday items that once belonged to the family, giving visitors a snapshot of life here in the 19th century. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to participate in Buddhist rituals in a calming temple environment!
