Fumonji Temple boasts 1,300 years of history since its establishment and houses numerous national important cultural properties. This significant temple is known as the Autumn Leaves Temple of Toyohashi and holds its Maple Festival every year from late November to early December, offering the chance to see beautiful Buddhist architecture among beautiful fall leaves.
Fumonji Temple's previous resident priest followed the example of Mt. Takano's custom of using paper cutouts in religious decorations and began offering hand-cut images of Buddhas with commemorative temple stamps, making Fumonji Temple the first temple to do so.
