    The main hall (National Important Cultural Property)

Jionji was once a complex centered on the Mirokudo temple with the three others of Mogamiin, Hozoin, and Kezoin, along with another peripheral 48 temples, all on the same mountain.
Currently, there are 17 temples in Sankain.

It has a history of about 1,000 years, and many of its buildings and Buddhist statues are designated as important cultural properties of the country, the prefecture, or the city.

Another highlight is the various events that take place throughout the year.

In particular, the Jionji Dance, which is held on May 5 every year, is a nationally designated intangible folk-cultural property.

On May 1, 2021, the Jionji Terrace was opened to introduce the charms of the old Jionji precincts in an easy-to-understand manner through various programs.

It is recommended to visit the Jionji Temple after deepening your understanding at the Jionji Terrace.
