Tondabayashi-city (Osaka Prefecture) is one of the representative examples of Jinaicho.
Jinaicho (also called Jinaimachi) refers to self-governing communities formed during the Muromachi period, which centered on the Buddhist temples of the Jodo Shinshu (the True Pure Land Sect of Buddhism) and training seminaries (gobo).
In the center of the Tondabayashi-city, there is the Koushouji-betsuin Temple.
Districts that remain historic cityscapes as Jinaicho are designated Important Traditional Building Preservation Areas.
