This temple houses a memorial tablet of Kato Kiyomasa, a prominent warrior and feudal lord who served the Toyotomi and Tokugawa Clans, from the Azuchi-Momoyama Period (the 16th Century) to the beginning of the Edo Period (the 17th Century). The statue has been worshipped as the "honorary Seisho-ko of Shirokane."The Seisho-ko Festival is held on May 4th and 5th every year and many stalls that are open at night line the streets.
