This temple was constructed in the early 14th century under petition from the Sagara clan, following the spread of the Daishi faith (a cult of Shingon Buddhism) in Hitoyoshi Kuma. The presence of a statue of Kobo Daishi, founder of Shingon Buddhism, indicates that the Daishi faith had spread to Kuma by this period.
