A museum related to Heisenji Hakusan Shrine. There are good exhibits about the excavation status and Hakusan faith. It can also be used as a short resting place during a pilgrimage.

A facility where you can learn about the history of Hakusan Heisenji Temple for free. The exhibition was more fulfilling than I expected. To my surprise, a bear had been sighted, so countermeasures were taken, such as playing the radio outside and turning off the automatic entrance door.

Visited on 5/27/2023. Admission is free. If you stop by Hakusan Heisenji Temple before worshiping, you will gain a deeper understanding. If you are visiting Heisenji Temple by car, there is a free municipal parking lot across the road. There was a staff member who was knowledgeable about the shrines and temples in the area, and she recommended other places. When I told him that I was going to Hokeiji Temple after Heisenji Temple, he told me that although it was quite a remote place, I could easily get there by car. I was in exactly the same situation, so I'm sure this person's advice is correct (I don't know his name, but if I tell him the above, he might be able to help me).

This facility is free to enter. The building was still new, so I guess it was recently built. Although there are not many materials related to Heisenji Temple, they are on display.

Even though you can enter for free, there are many excavated pottery and tools on display, and you can learn about the history of Hakusan Heisenji Temple, so I thought it would be a fun place to just stop by. There are restrooms and vending machines and benches outside, so I thought it was very convenient. By the way, when I visited, it was the 9th anniversary, so I was given something like a commemorative badge. Please note that taking photos of some exhibits is prohibited.
