Toshunji Temple is a treasure house of cultural assets such as Sanmon, the main gate of a Buddhist temple, which was designated as an important cultural property. Feudal warriors argued heatedly at this temple at the end of Edo period.

Toshunji Temple is the family temple of Mori Motonari and the branch pagoda of Inoue Kaoru was built in the graveyard of this temple. This temple has become popular these days due to the dog chief priest “Maru.”. Nomura Museum, which displays articles associated with the leading spirits of the Restoration, was established together with the temple.
