A Buddhist temple in Higashiyama Teramachi, east of Takayama. In 1608 it was erected for the memorial service of Kanamori Nagachika, the first lord of Takayama Castle. Since then it's been the family temple of the Kanamori clan, and it houses temple treasures such as a crane feather battle surcoat dedicated by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, military fans, and a baton of command. The Matsukura Ema Fair is held on August 9th and 10th every year, and lots of visitors purchase paper votive pictures during this summer tradition. People hang these up wishing for safety for their families, prosperity in business, and safety while on the road. It is a nationally designated Cultural Asset.

Articles about this spot
- Did the hiking trail and came across these Temples and Shrines. Absolutely beautiful buildings and architecture. The grounds and gardens are beautiful. This is a must do.
- Part of the Shrine Tour
- This was near the end of our walking tour of the shrines in the east of the city. Like most places the buildings were closed but it was nice to walk around the property.
