Kaijusen - ji Temple, with its main hall, Monjudo Hall and Oku-no-In, affords a view of the distant mountains which are likened to the ocean. The temple was named after the paradise of Kannon. Rising upamidst a dense green pine forest is a beautiful five-tiered pagoda painted a brilliant vermilion. This pagoda is a National Treasure.
