Kaidan'in tour experience at 500 yen with treasures. Told tsutau wall left to officials and walked single-mindedly on the hand on the left wall, while a dark passage.

  • 23/09/2014 zentsuji is Kobo Daishi's birthplace. The head temple of the Shingon sect and zentsuji. Along with the Temple of Koyasan, Kyoto is one of three major temples. Simulates the seashore with Tang to be erected the family Temple of the ancestors Kobo Daishi 807 years, returned home from the Tang dynasty, was built. Named after the mountain range towards the West five mountains of Mt. 5, stipulated in the Shikoku pilgrimage. Zentsuji came last, so go to the main building smoothly from the parking lot. On the way from daishido at home in the parking lot, we (13:44) sanuki Kannon sacred place 25 saw the number of JI hospital, (14:00) eventhough how bread "how to bread" and bent beside the temple came, I made a mistake the home I bought "potato, rain".
