Sightseeing

Oomoto

The southern end of the city is home to the Oomoto Headquarters, Baishoen (translated as “garden of plum and pine trees”), a religious sect founded in Ayabe in 1892 and is surrounded by tranquility. Visitors can view a large number of valuable buildings, including the Mirokuden, designated a tangible cultural asset of Japan; the main worship hall, Choseiden, said to be one of the largest wooden structures in the 20th Century; and the Konohanaan, also designated an important cultural property of Japan. The traditional Japanese gardens are beautifully maintained, making it a popular power spot for visitors to feel close to nature.
