Shinchoji Temple

Said to have been established by Gyoki, a Buddhist monk who lived during the Nara Period, Shincho-Ji Temple is a temple of the Shingon Buddhist sect.
Also known as "Miwa Shaka," the temple features important cultural assets such as a statue of sitting Buddha and a Zen rock garden, which is designated as a city landmark.
The rock garden, which is said to be from the early Edo Period, is particularly renowned for its karesansui (dry landscape garden) style.
It attracts many visitors in the fall who come to see the garden complemented by the autumn colors.
