There is Motsu-ji temple in the place of approximately 2km from Chuson-ji. It is the temple which the Lord of 2s Motohira and the Lord of 3s Hidehira built here. As for the then Buddhist monastery, it is claimed to have been a scale to exceed Chuson-ji. Unfortunately the Buddhist monastery had been destroyed by fire,the remains of a temple and the garden were left in a good state and were restored and maintained.
