- At Ryuunji Temple, you can see a Peace Tower that has prayers for peace on earth written in 48 different languages, as well as the first Peace Bell that was built at a Japanese temple within the Soto Zen School of Buddhism.
In 1836, Matsudaira Suono-kami was forced to step down as lord of Hamada Domain and relocated to Fukushima Prefecture. Due to this, the family temple of the Matsudaira Suono-kami family was moved from Ebisu-cho in Hamada city, and rebuilt in Misumi town in 1840, where it’s utilized as the main temple of Ryuunji Temple still to this day. The expansive garden in front of the main gates was created by transforming the existing terraced rice fields into a Japanese-style garden in 1970. With a gorgeous view, Ryuunji Temple is also a great place to see red Momiji trees in the fall.
