Said to have been constructed by Soga no Umako by order of historical leader Shotoku Taishi, this temple is also known as Naka no Taishi. The temple grounds are a nationally designated historic landmark, and visitors will experience ambience of the Asuka period as they pass through the restored central gate to the main hall and tower remains. The Hakuho-era Miroku-bosatsu (Maitreya) in a meditative pose and the Heian-era standing Jizo-bosatsu (Ksitigarbha) statues are designated as important cultural assets and can be viewed on the 18th of each month (fee required).
