It was the Enryaku era at that time in Japan and Emperor Kan’mu named this temple “Enryakuji Temple”.


Are the quotation marks required?

Titles are sometimes put in quotation marks. The can also be made bold, or italicized. In this case, I think italics works best because quotation marks are also used to indicate a false name or title, or something often described as "so-called".

I would also put a comma after "Japan".
