Daijoji Temple is a Zen temple that is located halfway up Nodayama. After the construction of this temple in 1262, the temple moved to its present location through the change of times in the latter half of the 17th century.

The gate of the temple leads to a Buddha hall, kitchen, meditation hall, and lecture hall that are connected through a corridor. This temple is still a place where monks practice asceticism (extreme self-denial and austerity). The precincts of the temple are open to public, and a seminar in Zen meditation for people is held regularly.

Zen meditation : 4:30 to 6:30 am every day (Visitors can observe a Buddhist memorial service after an hour's Zen meditation)
1:30 to 4 pm on Sunday (Visitors can listen to a minister's message after one and a half hours' Zen meditation)
