Just a temple we passed on our way to the city centre.
We later found out it is the this is the oldest temple in Takayama. It was originally built in 746 by Emperor Shomu. The oldest surviving building, the wooden Main Hall, dates from the 16th century. The three-storied pagoda ( on the picture) was constructed in 1821. Next to it is a gingko tree that is said to be 1,200 years old.
