Also known as Omuro Gosho, Ninna-ji Temple was built in 888. Within the large compound there stand two important cultural properties—the five-story pagoda and the niomon gate—and a national treasure, the main hall. Many of the temple's assets are displayed in the Reiho-kan Museum, including the sedentary statue of the deity Aizen Myo. It is also famous for its 200 squat cherry blossom trees, collectively known as Omurozakura, that are as short as two meters and bloom last in Kyoto.
