This Zen Buddhist temple in Mount Kokei was opened in 1313 of the Kamakura period. The mountain's name, "Kokei," (Tiger River) was said to have originated from Mount Lu's "Huxi" (Tiger River) in China, when Muso Soseki (the Rinzai Zen Buddhist founder of this temple) visited; the scenery here resembled the one in China. The buildings of Kannon and Kaizan are designated national treasures, and the garden is a scenic spot. This area is popular during autumn, when visitors come to see the beautiful vivid red leaves of the trees.
