Rinsenji Temple was established 500 years ago. It is dedicated to Fukurokuju, the god of happiness, wealth, and longevity, one of the Seven Lucky Gods of Ito. A must-see of Rinsenji Temple are the flowers of Japanese wisteria. Some of the wisteria plants are over 300 years old. People in the know gather in Rinsenji Temple between the beginning of April and the beginning of May to behold Wisteria flowers in full bloom. Besides its famous wisteria, there are ample plum trees that blossom near the pond garden, an early harbinger of spring.
