Higashi Betsuin Temple (Shinsyu Otani Sect Nagoya Betsuin)


In 1690, this temple was built after receiving a donation of approximately 33,060m2 of land from the site of the demolished Furuwatari Castle. The land was donated by Tokugawa Mitsutomo, the 2nd Owari feudal lord. A slight remnant of the castle is the difference in height between the temple grounds and Shimochaya park, a park located northeast of the temple.
