The Amida-ji temple of the Jodoshu sect is dedicated to Amida Nyorai, and has a self-carved statue of monk Tanzei who founded it in 1609. Followers were trained to recite the Nyoho Nenbutsu chants here. The statue kept within the shrine was originally adorned with the hair of the temple's founding priest. The flora surrounding the temple and fall foliage create a pretty sight in season.
