Also known as the inner sanctuary of Shoshazan Engyo-ji Temple, Miryoku-ji Temple belongs to the Tendai sect of Buddhism. The temple was originally founded in 1000 by Shoshazan Engyo-ji Temple's founder, the head priest Shoku, who built a hermitage and lived in seclusion here.
The temple is also home to many cultural assets and temple treasures, especially in the Main Hall, in which there is a Maitreya Buddha statue with two figures at its side, nationally designated important cultural properties.
The temple also enshrines Hotei, one of the seven gods of good fortune in Yumezaki, and is especially crowded with visitors on the first three days of the New Year.
