This temple is also known as 'KUHONBUTSU'. The name derived from the nine statues of Amitabha. It was built on the site of the former castle in 1678.

So the place was changed from a battlefield to a religious field. They might be the opposite sides to the same coin because they were life-or-death matters. At the entrance of the temple, a big wooden gate stands. The gate is Nio-mon gate. I saw many locals wandering back and forth in front of the gate.
