Founded in 1727 under the official name of Horin-ji, the temple is more commonly known as Daruma-dera. It is famous for the Daruma Hall which enshrines over 8,000 daruma gathered from all over Japan, and is especially crowded with devotees in early February during Setsubun. In the main hall, there are several unique attractions. One of them is the Cinema Hall which enshrines around 800 people who were involved in Japanese cinematography since the early days.
