This temple with ties to Oda Nobunaga belongs to the Myoshinji school of Rinzai Zen Buddhism. To reach it, you can take a city loop bus counterclockwise from JR Gifu Station or Meitetsu Gifu Station, get off at the Nagaragawa Convention Center North Entrance stop, and walk three minutes. Oda Nobunaga’s Family Grave is there, with the remains and mortuary tablets of the Nobunagas and Nobutadas. The main hall's Chitenjo with floorboards from Gifu Castle stained by the blood of soldiers is well known, and the hall has valuable items on display. In autumn the colored leaves of the dodan-tsutsuji shrubs in their garden are superb. They hold the Oda Nobunaga Memorial Ceremony on the first Saturday of October every year.

Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
