Kozanji Temple was founded by famous monk Myoe and is renowned for its numerous national treasures and important cultural properties, especially the picture scroll called Choju-giga. Toganoo, located deep in the mountains west of Kyoto which are famous for their autumn foliage, is considered an ideal location for mountain asceticism. Kozanji was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its rich collection of historical items rather than for its architecture.
