Gifu Zenko-ji used to enshrine Japan’s first statue of Buddha introduced from China. This statue, called Ikko Sanzon Amida Nyorai, was originally the principle image of Shinshu Zenko-ji temple and was worshiped by various people because of its auspiciousness. When Oda Nobunaga conquered the Gifu Castle and set his base there, he also brought this statue to Gifu to pray for the peace of the town.
