Tesshuji Temple

Kuno Temple, once built at the top of Mt. Kuno, was moved here by Takeda-Shingen in order to build a castle. Although the temple was once abolished, Tesshu Yamaoka restored the temple and changed its name to ”Tesshuji”. Located on the hill of Mt. Udo, you can see the beautiful view of Mt. Fuji, Shimizu Port and Miho pine trees. 19 sutras written by Indian ink on paper (Kunoji Sutra) are national treasures, which were the oldest decorated sutras transcribed by the Retired Emperor Gotoba when he became a priest.
