Tentokuin Temple




Maeda Toshitsune, the 3rd Lord of the Maeda family, married to Tamahime, a granddaughter of Tokugawa Ieyasu (the first shogun) in order to keep good a relationship with the central government (Tokugawa Shogunate). Tentokuin Temple was constructed as the family temple of Tamahime in the first half of the 17th century. The solemn gate of the temple that has been maintained since the time of foundation is a highlight. A visit inside the building is charged, and visitors can enjoy a story of Tamahime played with fancy dolls inside the temple.
