Kanjizaio-in Ato
Kanjizaio-in Ato Motsu-ji Keidai Tsuketari Chinjusha Ato [Special Historic Site]
Kyukanjizaio-in Teien [Place of Scenic Beauty](Hiraizumi Town)

 Commissioned by the wife of Fujiwara no Motohira, Kanjizaio-in stood next to Motsu-ji. Only the temple gardens remain. The garden is centered on Maizurugaike Pond, which is distinguished by elements representing rocky coastline and beaches, and a central island. Two Amida (Amitabha) halls were situated north of the pond, one large and one small. The entire area has been restored as a historic park open to the public.
