Fukiji Temple was built in the latter half of the Heian Period, and its large hall was designated as a national treasure. It was established as a place of worship for the Daiguji clan family of Usa Hachimangu Shrine that ruled this area during that period. After that, it has become one of the Rokugo Sanjiin until now. Its large hall's architecture, Buddha statue sculpture, and some mural paintings decorating the house are highly valued and show the typical form of Jodo art. In addition to the large hall, there are numerous cultural properties that reflect the long history of FukijiTemple, such as its main hall, Shirayama shrine that enshrines a guardian deity, medieval stone products, etc. The entire precinct is designated as a national historic site.
