Being a syncretized Shinto and Buddhist temple, this is an extremely rare temple where worshippers clap their hands. It is famous for the Shinto ritual of omizu-okuri (sending water) to the Nara’s Todaiji Temple Nigatsu-do Hall. It houses a late Kamakura period Deva Gate (a Nationally Important Cultural Property) and Nanboku-cho period wooden god and sitting goddess statues as well as the main hall (also a National Important Cultural Property) which was built in the Muromachi period and is so magnificent that it is said to be the best in Wakasa.

Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
