The temple has been loved by local people as it shows different beauty in different seasons.

Because the temple is not frequently picked up as a tourist destination in guide books, those in the know know the temple as a spot with seasonal beauty.

Historically, the temple was had been destroyed at the time of the Onin war (応仁の乱) in the mid-15th C.

The existing temple was re-built in 16th C.
