This temple was originally constructed during the Eishō period (1504 - 1521) by Tomotsuna Utsunomiya, the third head of the Utsunomiya family. It was the Amitabha Hall for the Obadera Temple, the Utsunomiya family's ancestral temple. The main hall is roofed with formed copper shingles. Within it are enshrined wooden statues of the Amitabha triad, together with a colored silk Mandala representing the Two Realms. The Main Hall has been designated by the Japanese government as an important cultural property.
