It is said that at the time Hamada Castle was being built, that the Tendai sect Raigo-ji Temple was moved from Mt. Jyozan to here and became the Jodo sect Shingaku-in Temple.
It houses a wooden Amida Nyorai-ritsuzo (standing figure of Amitabha Tathagata), a piece typical of the Kamakura Period (1185 - 1333).
The temple is designated as an Important Cultural Asset.
