  • On the third day of the three-night, four-day trip to Shikoku, I visited The 22nd Tagsho Eiji Temple. There is a long stone step which goes up to the main hall in front of the nio gate where two red statues pass through the impressive Nio mon. On the left side of the stone steps, there is the spirit water of Kobo. When Kobo Daishi prayed for the evil, when he dug a well to pray, milk-colored water sprang up and was called a "white water well". It is guarded by itato under the shrine. There is a main hall when going up the stone step of 53 steps. The main son is The Yakushi Buddha, who was created by Kobo Daishi with a vow to "heal the mental and physical diseases of all people equally." Thank you very much for your safety and longevity. Daishido is just on the left after going through the Niomon Gate. The precincts with beautiful fresh green trees had an open and bright atmosphere. The visit to Eiji Temple became a rush because it went out at 10:10 to be in time for 10:41 JR from Shinno (Arata) which is the nearest station of 23-tagsho Yakuoji.

  • As a temple, it is a splendid one including the mountain gate, and it is super-first class. However, word of mouth page management of this site is the worst ... there is an extra one facility information that does not matter. It's a page about white water wells, but of course, unnecessary. The story that you only need to comment together in the word of mouth page of the temple. The highlights here are the splendid mountain gates and the Yigion Tower.

  • One of my favorite temple so far! It shows that it's being taken care of very nicely... and you get there after the most beautiful walk (so far) on the Henro trail !
  • A humble and beautiful little neighborhood temple. i felt very peaceful here and liked that it seemed very far off the path for most henro. Plus there is healing water here. I think I'm better already 😄
