Yusanji Temple

This famous temple was established in 701 by Gyoki. In 749, when Empress Koken suffered from an eye disease, Gyoki prayed and cured her eyes by rinsing them with water from Ruri Falls in the temple precincts. Yusanji Temple thereafter became an imperially sponsored temple. The extensive temple grounds is dark even at midday from the thick tree covering, with streams and waterfalls, giving the feeling of deep mountains and mysterious valleys. The beautiful vermillion lacquered three-storied tower reflects the green of the woods. The temple gate was relocated here from Kakegawa Castle, where it was the main gate. The three-storied pagoda and the reliquary in the main hall are important cultural properties.
