Hosen-in Temple (宝泉院)

Founded in the precincts of Shorin-in Temple to serve as a training temple for shomyo chanting, part of Hosen-in was rebuilt in the 17th century with timber from Fushimijo Castle in the ceiling of its corridor. As in many other temples this "Ceiling of Blood" is a reminder of the blood that was spilled in the castle when a group of some 300 defenders committed suicide.
In the garden is a pine tree that has been growing there for more than 700 years. Visitors are able to drink green tea while admiring the view of the surrounding mountains.
