The temple enshrines a statue and foot imprint of the great priest Kobo Daishi, and it is said stepping on this foot imprint endows one with the same spiritual merit as walking the Shikoku 88 Temple Pilgrimage. The weeping cherry tree standing in front of the main temple building has been designated a Natural Monument by Ome City. The huge, three-meter-tall tree is 150 years old. Said to be the sister tree to the weeping cherry on the grounds of the Kongoji Temple, another ancient temple in the city, each year, usually around the beginning of April, the tree comes into bloom, creating extraordinarily beautiful and elegant scenery. During this time, many tourists come to see the tree and its blossom-covered branches which hang so far down they practically touch the ground, and the tree is one of the most famous cherry trees in Tokyo.
