  • It is a Zen temple of rinzai sect that was opened by the shishi of the end of the Edo period, Yamaoka Tetsufune. There are yamaoka tetsufune, the tomb of the Sanyu Encho dynasty, and a large golden Kannon statue. It is also a temple where Yasuhiro Nakasone and Shinzo Abe went to Zen meditation.

  • The temple of Yamaoka Tetsufune, which was active during the early edo-bloodless opening of The Sanyutei Encho, which is said to be the founder of Rakugo Nakako. There are two graves. We visited the festival until August 31, and we visited the festival because we were exhibiting ghost paintings that We had collected for reference without ghost stories. There were a lot of elegant works which passed even if it was said a beautiful woman picture, too and it was able to enjoy it as a painting exhibition usually though it was a frightening feeling when saying the ghost picture.
