Several buildings make up this Tendai Buddhist temple complex, two dating from before the 12th century. Of those two one is outstandingly attractive: a pavilion plated in gold leaf, the other is an even older wooden building, called the Kyozo Hall. The complex also includes a Treasure Hall, quite richly endowed, and a Noh theatre, as well as the working temple buildings where rituals are still conducted today.
