About Daigoji Temple
Designated a World Cultural Heritage Site in December 1994, Daigoji Temple is a treasure of wood and paper cultural heritage. Since it was founded, Daigoji Temple has been developing its history and passing down its culture from generations to generations. All temple treasures and cultural heritage besides those found in the buildings and halls are kept in the Reihokan, a 3600 ha complex.
Daigoji Temple has 41 National Treasures, 39,362 important cultural assets and about 150,000 undesignated temple treasures and inherited cultural assets such as Buddha statues and paintings. Here, treasures from ancient and medieval Japan are quietly preserved, and every year in spring and autumn, the public can catch some of these pieces at the Reihokan Special Exhibition.
