Inuyama Jakko-in Temple犬山 寂光院
Jakkoin Temple in Inuyama City, Aichi Prefecture, is a temple of the Chisan School of the Shingon Sect. The temple is also known by the names Tsugaokannon, and Momijidera. It is said that the Japanese Buddhist priest, Dosho, built the temple by order of Emperor Kotoku in 654. The temple received a donation from Oda Nobunaga as a holy temple of the Kimon guardian of Kiyosu Castle in 1565. The place is famous for its beautiful flowers all year round such as the spring Yoshino cherry, hydrangeas and crape-myrtle. The colorful leaves of about 1,000 trees can be seen in autumn, and many tourists come to the Momiji Festival held from the second Saturday of November to the second Sunday of December.

Aichi Main Areas
Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
