- Ninna-ji Temple
Ninna-ji Temple is the head temple of the Omuro school of Shingon Buddhism, founded in 888. After flourishing in the Kamakura period (1185-1333), most of the temple was destroyed by fire during the Onin War (1467-1568), but was rebuilt in 1634 with the support of Tokugawa Shogun Iemitsu.
The precincts of the temple are lined with historical buildings erected in the Edo period, including a five-story pagoda and the Nioimon Gate. Since its founding, the temple has also housed many treasures, including the principal worship statue of Amida Sansonzon, Buddhist paintings, and artifacts.
Approximately a 16 minute train ride from JR Nijo Station.
