  • A 5-minute walk from Tamakei-ji Mae Station. It is just across the suspension bridge (Horyo's Miyabashi). A temple of the Koyasan Shinsei sect founded in the Nara period. It is said that Kukai Kobo Daishi opened in the ruins of the imperial palace "Horyo-gu" which was built as a temporary imperial palace. The main son is Kukai. There are many mizuko jizo with colorful rafters near the entrance of the precincts, and behind them is a green 13-meter-long green Daifumei Meiwang. In the mountains behind the main hall, there is a "Tour of the 88-place sacred place" where 88 tag places are worshipped in the land, but if you have a bad foothold, you should go with comfortable shoes.

  • When you go to the basement of the main hall, there is a place where you can pray for the body to heal. Because it seems to be good to recite the Shingon which has been posted three times, please do by all means. There is a suspension bridge near the temple, which is recommended.
