Taishi Odori is the traditional dance of Kamioka, it has been dancing for long time. Also it was designated as Intangible folk cultural assets.
The day, it will be held Buddhist service and then people start dancing. At the same time, it will be held market there.
You can see Taishi stature in the temple, after Buddhist service.

Over 300 years ago, a statue of Shotoku Taishi moved to another place from Jozen-ji Temple. When the statue left Jozen-ji, people started to suffer a great famine, so people asked for the return of the statue of Shotoku Taishi.
Two years later, in 1628 the statue was given back to the Joren-ji. One night before it came back, the people saw the shape of the statue suddenly shining above the temple’s cherry trees. Seeing a good omen they celebrated the return of the statue and danced all night long and then, they do it every year. This is how the Taishi Odori started.

杉の巨木が参道にあります♪岐阜県の天然記念物。境内に銀杏の大木もあり、こちらは飛騨市の天然記念物。この寺の歴史は鎌倉時代にさかのぼるとか。山門も本堂も木造の立派なものです。
