Beautiful MOMIJI Spot

According to historical books, the SEKIGANJI temple was founded by Prince Shotoku in 587.
During the Kamakura period (1185–1333), Takauji Ashikaga & his son escaped to this temple to avoid war.
As such this temple is known for its deep connection to the Ashikaga family.
Colored leaves fill up the approach to the temple in autumn, and a Japanese maple festival is held each year.
The statue of NIO (a guardian deity in Buddhism) at the Sanmon (main) gate is designated as a national treasure.
