Dainichibo Temple
Dainichibo is located in a quiet country area. Mt. Yudonosan used to be closed to women, but in 807, Kobo daishi Kukai founded and opened the temple where everyone, both men and women, can visit and pray. The Nio-mon gate is a designated Prefectural Cultural Property, and the main shrine building enshrines a sacred statue of Yudonosan Daigongen god, which was sculptured by Kukai himself. The Hokyointo, a kind of pagoda, was built during the Edo Period. Also there is a tomb of a son of the 12th Emperor Keiko. The highlight is the body of a holy priest, Shin-nyokai, a priest who practiced austerity to the point of death and mummification. His sacred figure praying for the salvation of people will be impressive.
