About this sight
Built as an annex to the adjoining Ana Hachimanguu Shrine in 1642, many visitors come because it is one of the spots of the Seven Lucky Gods Tour. This temple was once well known for the yearly Houshoukai festival which was temporarily discontinued during World War ll, however it has since been resumed and is hosted on the 10th of October every year. Though small, the temple has an interesting history and it is rumored that there was an escape passage that leads all the way to the Edo castle.
