This little known temple lies in a rarely visited corner of the Yamashina valley, just south enough to be in fact in the Fushimi district of Kyoto. The temple mostly consists in a courtyard built around a lantern. The courtyard is surrounded by covered passages on three sides and the main hall on the fourth. The structures are made of wood of a beautiful reddish or rusty colour. The constructions are all original, a rare fact for a temple in Kyoto. But there's a reason: the temple was founded only in 1931! :-)
While there is probably few reasons to visit this place, you may still consider dropping by if you plan to walk south from Daigo-ji to the Rokujizo stations.
