Ryotanji Temple

This famous Rinzai temple has a history of 1,000 years, and is connected with the Ii family. This ancestral temple honors forty generations of the Ii family, including Ii Naomasa, the leader of the Four ”Deva Kings” of the Tokugawa, and Ii Naosuke of the late Edo period.
The garden of Ryotanji Temple was designed by Kobori Enshu, and is famous as a nationally designated place of scenic beauty.
The hallways boards emit a birdlike chirping sound, and the dragon was carved by Hidari Jingoro. The entire Edo period structure has been designated as a Shizuoka Prefectural cultural property.
The main hall enshrines Akasahagarbha Bodhisattva, a secret Buddhist image that imparts wisdom.
