"The temple was built in 1904 to house the Buddha's relics (the bones of Shakyamuni) given to Japan by the King of Thailand. The connection to Thailand is why you can find items such as elephants and statues of the fifth King of Thailand. The name of the temple means Japan and Thailand.

When there aren't too many visitors, the temple is a solemn and quiet place, guarding the whole of Kakuozan. The glorious temple houses a golden bronze statue of Buddha, a gift from the King of Thailand. Look up and see the plaque in Thai! This plaque, inscribed by the 9th King of Thailand, stands for Shakyamuni Buddha.

Another feature is the wall paintings by the famous Japanese painter Tatsuo Takayama, depicting Shakyamuni Buddha at the moment-of-enlightenment."
