    The recommended route between Gohyaku Rakanji temple to Daienji temple is a bit complicated. Kaifukuji temple is right next to the Gohyaku Rakanji temple. After visiting Kaifukuji temple go along the narrow road running east of the temple after climbing the steep road you will see the downslope coming from the graveyard of the temple. When you go down the slope, turn left and cross the overpass then you will see a road directing to Meguro Gajoen.

    On one of the Meguro Walking trails, after getting out from Meguro Fudoson, the next destination is Gohyaku-Rakanji Temple, another popular attraction known by wooden 500 arhat statues. There is a shortcut route from the narrow road right at the Niomon Gate, but the guidebooks often recommend roundabout route also visiting other temples around Ryusenji Temple. First go out from Niomon and walk about 100 meters south and turn left at the barbershop. Along the road there are two small temples, such as Anyoin Temple best known by its unique museum themed on Asian Buddhism(currently closed for renovation) and Jojuin Temple nicknamed as Takoyakushi. Turn left at the intersection close to Jojuin Temple and walk about a few minutes. The building of Gohyaku-Rakanji Temple is surprisingly built with reinforced concrete.

    Parasitological Museum is one of the destinations for a local walking trail and its next destinations are either Rinshi-no-Mori Park or Meguro Fudoson(Ryusenji Temple).
