Myokian, a Zen temple of the Rinzai Sect, was established during the Muromachi Period. The Taian teahouse, one of only three in Japan designated as National Treasures, is the oldest in Japan. Said to be the creation of Sen no Rikyu, the interior of the tea room measures two tatami mats in size. Advance reservations are required to view the teahouse.
