This temple was reformed to the Nichiren sect of Buddhism and renamed as Yusenji in 1629. The temple is home to a statue of the Buddha Daiitoku Myo-o that grips a Shiawase no Himo "thread of happiness" in its hands. Holding this while praying is said to ensure prayers are granted. The temple is also famous as a site for offerings of dolls.
