Keifuku-ji Temple
This temple was opened in 1369 (Ōan 2) by the Zen monk Tsugen Jakurei. Keifuku-ji Temples were built during the Tensho Era (1573 - 91) in Himeji, Okayama and Tottori, and they are widely known as the four Soto Sect Keifuku-ji Temples. While it is small this temple has 7 main buildings, and from 1633 (Kanbun 3) to 1871 (Meiji 4) the monk administrator was in charge of Tanba Province Minami Kuwada county, Funai county, Harimanokuni, Mino county, Kato county, Kasai county and Akashi county. White flowers bloom from the rare Shala trees in August every year within the precinct. From June to July you can see the forest green tree frog that has the rare behavior of laying a mass of eggs the size of a softball on trees, while if you walk upstream on Inagawa River there is a Japanese giant salamander that can only live in places with clean water.
