Motsuji Temple

Motsuji Temple was founded by priest Jikaku Daishi and built in the period between the second and third Oshu Fujiwara lords, Motohira and Hidehira. The temple complex once boasted a scale that surpassed Chuson-ji Temple with 40 halls and pagodas and 500 monks, but most of it was destroyed by fire. The garden which represents the Pure Land still retains its original beautiful features.
