This is a very nice little temple and a must visit to learn about a man by the name of Kuuya. Kuuya Shounin lived in the 10th century and is connected to this temple. He is known for creating a dancing sutra, where one dances and chants at the same time. He is also reported to have been deeply loved by the community and elevated as a saint for those who suffer and are poor. When he left the temple he left behind a carved image of himself. There are details of it photographed below.
