This is the head temple of the Buzan school of the Shingon sect, and the eighth stop on the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage. It was built in 686 by a priest named Domyo to pray for the health of Emperor Temmu. There are numerous attractions to see, including a main hall built in the same style as Kiyomizudera Temple in Kyoto, along with a five-story pagoda and a traditional stairway. The temple is gaining popularity for its beautiful flowers, which include peonies and cherry blossoms.
