The main place of the temple, the monk's living space, and the bell; everything here is built in Gassho-zukuri style and there's no such place you can find. Shoromon (bell tower gate) is a thatched roof with eaves on the first floor which is also very rare. This is said to be built in 1801 with 1425 people. At Kyodokan (local museum), materials about old tools are displayed. There is a yew tree planted in 1827 for commemoration.
