The Greatest Number of Cultural Treasure in One Place
Home to ten 10 national treasures and 42 cultural heritage items, Onjoji Temple is a truly important historical spot. One of its main halls was rebuilt by the first wife of Toyotomi Hideyoshi and still exists as it was then. The other halls are also quite spectacular. The temple has various Buddhist stautes, paintings and other works of art along with a number of priceless historical artifacts. Onjoji's four different gardens, built across different periods of Japanese history, are very beautiful. Experience all of Japan's beauty in one place.
