View Gallery
Myozen-ji Temple was built in 1748 as a facility representing the Otani sect of Shinshu Buddhism. The architecture is unique in that not only the main hall but buildings such as the temple kitchen and the bell tower were built with thatched roofs, a distinct feature in Shirakawa-go. At the museum, old everyday articles and documents are on display.
