A wooden statue of Shinran Shonin is snshrined.
Completed in 1636,
this hall employs elements of traditional palace-style architecture
such as round pillars and hinged outer wall panels that open upward.
The largest construction project of the early Edo period,
its impressive breadth (57 meters) allows for a large seating capacity.
