A venerable Buddhist temple founded by a Tang dynasty Chinese priest and one of the Four Nagasaki Temples of Good Fortune. Prior to World War II, it was designated a Special Protection Building (equivalent to today’s National Treasure designation), but the original building was lost due to the atomic bombing. Thereafter, the temple’s great statue of Kannon was built in prayer for the happiness in the next life of those who died from the bombing as well as in the war. The Sakura-machi stop on the tramway is the closes stop to the temple. A 10-minute walk from JR Nagasaki Station.
