Although most of To-ji Temple was destroyed during war, it was rebuilt in the Edo period, and it still retains many of its original characteristics. 

On the 21st of every month, the “Kobo Market” is held, where various antiques are lined up in the precincts and you can enjoy the old-fashioned scenery.
