    Kitanohai-ji Temple Ruins

    Kitanohai-ji Temple is the oldest temple in the Nishimikawa area and was built in the Asuka period.
    It is located on the southeast side of the Hekikai area which fans out along the right bank of the Yahagi River.
    The temple spans 126 meters north to south and retains the traditional earthen walls that were originally on the site. The Nandaimon, Chumon, pagoda, Kondo Hall, Kodo hall, and priests’ quarters span out in a straight line from south to north in the traditional Shitenno architectural arrangement.

    Past excavations have unearthed roof tiles, Sue ware, ash glazed items, and green glazed items, with carved wall relief tiles, and chevron-shaped ornaments similar to those found exclusively at Shoso-in. These are rare specimens seldom found elsewhere in Japan.
    Address40-69 Goura, Kitano-cho, Okazaki-shi, Aichi Prefecture

    Daiju-ji Temple

    Opened in 1475, this was the ancestral temple of the Matsudaira and Tokugawa clans.
    It enshrines the tomb of the eighth generation of Matsudaira, Reizei Tamechika, and contains a sliding door painted in his image (a national important cultural property), and a mortuary tablet as tall as the Tokugawa general, and a wooden statue of Ieyasu at age seventy-three.

    The two-storied pagoda, an important cultural property, was commissioned in 1535 by Ieyasu’s grandfather, Matsudaira Kiyoyasu.
    The three kilometer route spanning Okazaki Castle and Daiju-ji Temple is referred to as the “Vista Line” and has been preserved for 370 years as a historic view.
