Yugyo-ji Temple

Yugyo-ji Temple

The head temple of Ji-shu Buddhism (time sect) worshipping Priest Ippen as the founder. Many events are held throughout the year, including a ceremony for the anniversary of the founder’s death (Kaisanki), and Susuki Nenbutsu-e (prayer ceremony). This place is known as a place of relaxation for the locals and as a training ground with buddhist temples including a wooden main temple praised to be the best in Tokaido (10 buildings were registered as a national Tangible Cultural Property in 2015), and a large gingko tree (oicho) estimated to be about 700 years old.
