Mitsuzouin Temple (Yoneyama Yakushi Bettouji)

Yoneyama was opened in the year 712 (Wadou period 5) by the monk Taichou of Echizen.
Following that, the medicine Buddha was seated at the top of the mountain, and the temple foundation was begun.
This temple is one of three in Japan dedicated to Japanese pharmacists, so it is also known as Yoneyama Pharmacist Temple ("Yoneyama Yakushi Bettouji").
The main sculpture from the Edo era shows extremely beautiful and skilled craftsmanship, and had been designated as a cultural asset of Joetsu city.
Furthermore, the sword of the third Lord of Takada Castle, Tadashi Matsudaira, which was dedicated to Yoneyama Yasushi in 1623, and is also a cultural property of Niigata prefecture, is also housed in the temple.
