Ukimido (Mangetsu-ji Temple)

Ukimi-do at Mangetsu-ji Temple is one of the eight great sights of Omi, known for the sight of geese descending in the Katata area. The temple itself is a venerable institution that dates back 1,000 years. This Otsu landmark is one place to get a dramatic view of the sunrise.
The fantastic scenery encompassing this hall floating upon the water is a must-see. It’s no surprise so many people over the ages, including the renowned haiku poet Matsuo Basho, have adored this site.
