Kuhon-butsu, as it's widely known, or more formally Kuhonzan Yuizainembutsu-in Joshin-ji, was built in the early Edo Period in 1678, during the reign of the 4th Tokugawa Shogun Ietsuna, by the great monk Kaseki Shonin.The temple grounds belong to the Jodo Shu Pure Land Buddhist denomination. The temple grounds are built on the vestiges of old Okusawa Castle and are a great place to spend an afternoon. There is no charge for admission.
