Shiramizu Amida Temple
Temples and Shrines
Shiramizu-Amidado is said to have been built by Toku-hime, the widow of Feudal Lord Iwaki Norimichi in 1160, towards the end of the Heian Period, and was designated a national treasure in 1952.
It is the oldest building still standing in Iwaki and enshrines five Buddha statues.
Shiramizu-Amidado is surrounded by a beautiful garden area and a large pond, and, to enter the temple, visitors must cross a typical Japanese-style bridge.
Also, the beauty of the lotus in summer, and the colourful leaves of autumn attract even greater number of tourists.
