This temple was built by Yoshiakira Ashikaga, the second shogun in the Muromachi Period, in 1367 (Joji 6) and founded by Fumyo Kokushi. It has a pagoda called Kaiun Pagoda, an important cultural property, and a group of 500 arhats line the Rakan Hall on the left side of the main hall. Weeping cherry blossoms in the beginning of April and peonies at the end of April are things you should not miss.
