Jojakkoji Temple

Beautiful contrast of light and shadow reflecting the four seasons

The site of Fujiwara Teika’s Shiguretei is famous for the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu. Located halfway up Mt. Ogura with beautiful autumn leaves, this is the temple where Nisshin (Shin) Shonin lived in seclusion. The temple has a multi-purpose pagoda and Myokendo, both of which are designated as important cultural properties.
