Kitain Temple (喜多院)

Temple

Boasting a 1200-year history, Kitain Temple is a National Designated Important Cultural Property that houses several valuable Cultural Properties. In addition to ordinary worship and visits to the main temple building, it also puts on occasional exhibitions of its treasures, which make available to visitors the precious items it has kept throughout its long history. The souvenir shop within its precincts was opened in 1972 and is well known as the first temple-based souvenir shop for tourists within the city limits of Kawagoe.

          Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you'll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
