Fukaji Temple was established in 701 A.D. around 1,300 years ago and is thus quiet ancient. It was set up the legendary priest Gyouki who created a eleven faced Kannon statue here. Its main garden was designed in the Edo Period. Fuka-ji temple has a secondary though small pond garden behind its main garden with a tiny island in the middle. The combination of the slope mountain and the water lines projects an elegant natural landscape. The dry waterfall structure is highly evaluated and is designated as a piece of the Shinshiro-city cultural property.
