About this sight

This temple's claim to fame is its Kannon-do Hall, which houses one of Japan's biggest standing wooden statue of Kannon (Tachiki Kannon, made of zelkova wood), the Buddhist goddess of mercy. The hall was built during the Kamakura period (1185–1333) and designated as a national important cultural property.
