Amidaji Temple

The original site where priests quietly gathered and enshrined the ashes of legendary warrior and ruler, Nobunaga Oda and his son Nobutada. In addition to his military exploits, Nobunaga permitted the practice of Christianity and tried to develop local economies by improving badly kept roads and abolishing barriers between provinces. The graves of Nobunaga and Nobutade and those of more than 120 supporters are located within the temple grounds. It is thought that some of Nobunaga's ashes have been divided and enshrined at this and two other sites, the Kenbun Shrine and the Honnoji Shrine.
