Hida Kokubunji Temple

Among the features of Hida Takayama with its centuries-old townscape spreading out, Hida Kokubunji Temple has a history that goes back the farthest.
There are many highlights, including a large ginkgo tree over 1,200 years old, a bell tower gate relocated from Takayama Castle, and foundation stones remaining from the Nara Period.
In particular, a three-story pagoda, visible from afar, is a must-see spot that has repeatedly been destroyed and rebuilt to watch over the history of Hida Takayama.
