It marked a milestone in the architectural history of the country, because it is the only building of this style still in Japan. Its entrance is 420 yen per person and is governed by a daily schedule from 8:45 to 17:00.

In the temple grounds you will find the treasure room, the bell tower and the three-story pagoda. The latter is a reconstruction of 1821 being the only one of this style in Hida. By the way, the original pagoda had 7 floors but in the reconstruction only three could be restored.
