An old wisteria tree that is over 450 years old, managed by Daikou-in temple at Nishifunabasama in Shibata-machi.
The wisteria has tangled around a large Japanese torreya tree like a serpent, and at the top, has formed a circle of about 20 meters in diameter and covered the top in an umbrella shape.
It is covered with purple flowers in early May, but since it is towards the very top, it is hard to see from the ground.
On the side of the wisteria and the torreya tree is a Fudodo (effigy), and it has been revered as a scapegoat effigy.
In addition, halfway up the stairs to the Fudodo is a spring water that flows out from between two Fudoson (Āryācalanātha) and it is said that this water has never run dry.
Because this wisteria is a valuable type in Japan, and so that it can be transplanted when this old tree dies, Miyagi Prefecture has extracted seeds from this plant and are conducting research on the plant.
It was registered in Miyagi Prefecture as a designated natural monument on March 25, 1955.
