Tajima Ankoku-ji Temple, which belongs to the Daitoku-ji branch of the Rinzai School, was established in the late Kamakura Period (1185 - 1333).
The temple is famous for its 100-year-old Dodan-Tsutsuji (Enkianthus perulatus) trees that were planted in the backyard when the temple's Hondo main hall was reconstructed in 1904.
These trees create mesmerizing scenery, especially in November with their beautiful red leaves.
