It was constructed as a Confucian temple in the Genroku era of the Edo period. It was the seat of learning of the Tokugawa shogunate and stationed here since 1690.

At the time of visiting, the precinct was surrounded by the silence. When I stood at the bottom of the stairway, the magnificent gate called 'Kyodan Mon' was seen on the top of the staircase. Besides, the main hall called 'Taisei Den' was also seen through the gate. And I could see a name tablet being hung on the wall.
