The Manpuku-ji Temple was erected by Masuda Kanemi, the 11th lord of the Masuda clan in 1374.
Its main hall shows Kamakura period style and has been designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan. Its garden has also been designated as a National Historic Site and Scenic beauty and is believed to have been designed by a famous Zen monk Sesshu.
The Temple also has many artefacts including Buddhist statues and pictures, portraits of the lords of the Masuda clan and a coloured Chinese earthenware brought by trade with Southeast Asian countries; all of which are the great evidence of the cultural standard of Masuda.
