A famous autumn leaves spot, where leaves begin to turn red especially early within Kameoka City. The temple is believed to have been established when Saicho visited this site and opened the first dojo in 782. A Japanese maple tree estimated to be 400 years old is enshrined, as if it wraps the temple grounds. When the leaves begin to fall, it is as if a scarlet felt mat has been spread out.
