Kojakuji Temple is a Soto sect temple on Mt. Iimori in Asuke Town, Toyota City, Aichi Prefecture. In order to hold a memorial service for the departed powerful Asuke clan, the temple was built among the remains of the Asuke clan residence in 1427. In the mountains there is a stone image of the sixteen arhats, and the tombs of the Asuke Castle Lords and five generations of the Asuke clan. The eleventh chief priest of the temple known as the father of momiji, planted maple and cedar trees in the area and now it is famous for its beautiful autumn leaves. Because it is located in the middle of the Korankei Gorge, many tourists come to visit in the fall.

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.
