Places to see
Joeiji temple was founded in 1616, and has a historical atmosphere. Most locals visit it not for sightseeing but for practical purposes. The bell was forged in the Edo period. Some of the buildings were rebuilt recently.
The Yayoi Kusama Museum is 400 meters from the station and dedicated to the artist's works. The museum is reservation- and membership-only. That said, it is a wonderful place to see her unique art pieces. Though it is not a very big building, the number of people inside are limited at any one time so you can take a look at your leisure. Everywhere you look you will see her trademark polka dots.
There are many other temples and shrines to be found in the area as well.
