Nichiryubuji Temple


Also known as "Mino Shimizu", a nod to its similarities to Kiyomizu-dera in Kyoto, this temple was designated as an important cultural asset due to its significance in the Kamakura Period (1185-1333). A remarkable historical figure, Hojo Masako, served here as a nun and was married to the shogun.
The giant Japanese cypress in front of the temple is around 20 meters tall and its base is more than 3 meters wide. Its complex myriad of branches makes it truly worthy of the title "cypress of a thousand branches". Along with being a natural monument of the city, moonlight concerts are also held here in the fall.
