Fujiwara no Kiyohara's daughter Princess Tokuhime is said to have built Shiramizu Amida Temple as a memorial to her deceased husband, Norimichi Iwaki. The architecture is representative of the late Heian period. Its design elegantly harmonizes the beautiful curved lines of the roof with its Jodo style garden. During the summer, the oga lotus is in bloom. During fall, the large gingko tree and maple are in full splendor. Shiramizu Amida Temple is Fukushima Prefecture's only national treasure.
