Sairinji Temple, which is famous for its Karako camelias, is an ancient temple founded by Hodo-Sennin.
The standing statue of Eleven-Faced Kannon that is its principal image was created in the mid-Fujiwara era and is very unusual in that it has four hands. Beautiful flowers can be enjoyed in all seasons,
including cherry blossoms in spring, hydrangeas in early summer, and colorful autumn foliage in the fall.
At Tsumanosato Hydrangea Garden, which can be found in the temple grounds, some 100,000 hydrangea flowers bloom around June each year.
