  • Temple number 12 of the amazing 88 temples pilgrimage of Shikoku, 2nd UNESCO heritage path. it's definitely worth the 1200km long, where you don't need to carry water with all vending machines availab...  more »
  • No. 12 Temple. Called "henro rolling" is the second highest in Shikoku pilgrimage mountain sacred sites and pilgrimage walk it takes more than 6 hours. I went by taxi I saw walking Shikoku pilgrims who along the way. Cedar walk and invigorating China air is clear like a different world. Walking the road to find 13 Buddhist statues, snails, birds, animals and even fun. Daikoku's three-sided Daikoku lore that sealed the Orochi demon became the origin of the temple, a three-sided pagoda, the right face of the Central Pagoda of bishamonten, left side by side rare Sarasvati and the face.

  • The route to shosanji calls one of the hardest route during the "ohenro88". It gives you a chance to refresh yourself. Get away from the things that annoying you in daily life. Giving you another level of mind each time when you step up and down from morning to evening. Unforgettable journey. You will remember every single second inside the mountain.
  • Shousanji's location on the top of a mountain provides visitors with a perfect view of the valleys and farms that surround it. You can access by car, but the hike was a fabulous adventure and challenge for me. The folklore of emon saburo associated with the history of this temple is an interesting read too.
  • My great grandma was born near this temple. I love this place though.
  • Go by car driving poor people as the hardest part of 88 and acceptable not to listen 2 x 5 while I thought might be in size camping car impossible challenge. Park around 10 pm, come in the morning if you're relatively less car and Park overall arrived without problems, but during the retreat after the visit, were parting and climb some 10 cars. General car clutch difficult place the thrust of taxi driver clutch points, and keeps good sure違emashita, but some embarrassed (back to us several times, and were parting somehow things won't fall even during clutch points in the back of the car, and his) car without waiting for a clutch point preferred climbing the Valley side preferred is leaving are known, but the thrust really embarrassed. I thought this practice. Thought I should take a taxi and go by car to drive a car again, confident person.
