Yakushido temple in Otawara

While cycling around again, i stopped and took some pictures of this temple.  Its on the corner of a busy street and had caught my attention before. Using Google translate i found some information from the Otawara city office website, that seems to be relevant to this temple.   Click Here

Originally built around 1624 to 1644. and enshrined the Yakushi Buddha statue. It was rebuilt by the Great Fire 1757, rebuilt in 1793, with the present building having been restored many times now.
