In the Warring States period, it is said that “those who dominate the Omi dominate the world”, Oda Nobunaga built the Azuchi Castle in Omibonchi (Omi Basin) and aimed at unification. Since it is a transportation hub, logistics and business developed Omi merchants were active in the country.

Its precinct is the entire Mount Hiei (Hieizan) of altitude 868m, and it has been called the Japanese Buddhism mother mountain because of the fact that many of the founders of Buddhism in Japan, such as Honen, Shinran, Eisai and Nichiren were trained in Hieizan Enryakuji.
