It was inherited by the head of the village making its appearance unique from other temples. It features a main hall which was made according to a traditional style of residential architecture.In the southeastern part of the temple grounds is a Kannon-do (outer temple building)
which contains a hidden life-size Kannon which was is said to come from the bottom of the ocean which today is only revealed to laypersons once every four years.
