Around the Geibikei...Hiraizumi

Nearby the beautiful sightseeing area of Geibikei is the recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hiraizumi. The Fujiwara clan during their rule of the area in the 12th and 13th centuries built many buildings and temples. Those that remain today are 'The Golden Hall of the Chusonji' and 'The Garden of  Pure Land in the Motsuji'.
