This ancient temple belongs to the Ritsu sect of Buddhism and is known for its “Mibu Kyogen”, a silent, humorous performance that explains Buddhist teachings. Mibu Kyogen has been designated as an important intangible folk culture asset. There’s Mibu-zuka, a graveyard that is located on the temple grounds that includes the grave of Kamo Serizawa, other Shinsengumi members, and a bust of Isami Kondo.
