The temple that was originally here on Iki Island was reformed into Ankoku Temple to pray for peace and mourn the war dead in 1338. It is a stately and artistic building. The temple is home to many valuable cultural properties of that period. You will find a giant cedar tree over 600 years old in the grounds of the temple. This allows you to feel the history. Please make sure to visit this site if you have an interest in Buddhism, temples or history.
