Myotsuji Temple

Myotsuji Temple is a building representative of the Kamakura period (1185-1333), and is called the “Symbol of Wakasa Culture”. Sakanoue no Tamuramaro was travelling in the Hokuriku region and started to build the temple in 806 because he received a prophecy in his dream. The degnified main hall surrounded by cedar trees and the  Three-story pagoda are designated as national treasures.
