The temple is said to have been founded in 806, the first year of the Daido era. The vermillion-lacquered main hall is also called the Red Hall and, together with the bell tower famous for chimes on New Year's Eve, is a symbol of Onomichi. The big rock beside the main hall, Tama no Iwa, is said to have been a landmark for voyages due to a shining gem placed on it in the past.
