An old temple said to have been founded by Jikaku Daishi Ennin in 838, it is a Tendai sect temple dedicated to the 11-headed Kanzeon Bodhisattva. The simple wooden Niomon gate was built in the Bunki era (1501?1504) in the Muromachi period, and it has been designated as a national important cultural property as a rare building that conveys the architectural style of the Momoyama period (1573?1603). In addition, the main hall built in 1696 was designated a tangible cultural property by Chiba Prefecture. You can see cherry blossoms in the spring and autumn leaves in the fall, making it a place where you can enjoy the changes of the four seasons.
