Reviewed:2017/05/16 西尾茶の原樹が境内にある
西尾市の城下町からは少し外れた場所にあり、境内もそんなに大きなお寺ではありませんが、お茶処西尾市のお茶の樹の原樹が境内に植えられているのが一応の観光ポイントですね。
Reviewed:2016/09/11 茶祖の寺
明治5年に時の住職が京都に出掛け、宇治の茶種と栽培技術を西尾に持ち帰り、境内に茶畑を作り、西尾に茶の文化が広まったといわれており、境内には西尾茶の原樹もありました。

          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.
