It is said that the founder of the Jodo-shu sect of Buddhism, Honen Shonin (better known as Kurodani-san in Kyoto), opened this temple. In the grounds stands the Kumagaido hall that is connected to the Tale of the Heike, also there is a three-storied pagoda dedicated to the second Tokugawa shogun, Hidetada. In the last days of the Tokugawa shogunate, the troops of the Aizu Domain (present day Fukushima prefecture) made this temple their base, which also was often visited by the Shinsengumi (shogunate police) that was a subordinate ally of the Aizu Domain. This temple can be easily visited by wheelchair users as there is parking for wheelchair users and the tourist route is wide. (Month checked: 2018.Dec, )
