Daiju-ji Temple | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Mikawa-Anjo Station 

[Daiju-ji Temple]

The family temple of the Matsudaira family and Tokugawa Shogun family

The tombs of 8 generations of the Matsudaira family, mortuary tablets of successive shoguns, and a wood statue of Lord Ieyasu at the age of 73 are located within this ancient temple. Okazaki Castle can be seen from the main hall through Sanmon-gate and Somon-gate. Successive lords of the castle are said to have knelt in the castle tower facing Daiju-ji Temple to pray every day. Visitors will feel its history through the two-storied pagoda, an important cultural property, the large chinquapin tree planted by Ieyasu, and mortuary tablets of successive shoguns as tall as the men themselves.
