Established in 756 by Koro, believed to be one of the Chinese priests who accompanied Ganjin back to Japan, Enjo-ji is a prominent temple on the Yagyu Road. The garden (Jodo sect style) was landscaped during the Fujiwara era, the pond representing Kannon's paradise in the south. In the Main Hall is an 1196 sculpture of Dainichi done by Unkei, a seated Amida dating to the Heian period and Kamakura period statues of the Four Heavenly Kings. Also noteworthy are two national treasures, Kasugado and the Hakusando, both Shinto shrines which were added in 1228.
