An old temple located in lonesome Yamashina

Bishamon-do Temple belongs to the Tendai sect of Buddhism and has a strong connection with the imperial family.  The main deity is Bishamonten, worshipped as the deity of good business and family safety.  In January, visitors can receive an auspicious bamboo amulet.  The temple was opened by a monk, Gyoki, in 703 and was restored at the present location in 1665 by another Buddhist priest.  Since an imperial prince assumed the position of head priest in the 17th century, imperial family members still fill the position until today.  Some of the temple buildings and gates were transferred from the imperial palace.
