Due to its location, Gentsuji was hit by numerous wildfires which have destroyed its
records, making the temples’ origins unknown to this day.
In the early 1900s, ancestors of the founders of the temple moved the main hall to its
present location. Some years later, the residing priest became the head priest of Daianji in Shimoda. Today Gentsuji is a branch temple of Daianji.
