528 Kiyomizu-cho, Yasugi-city
An ancient temple founded in 587 during the Asuka period.
This is a Tendai sect temple whose principal image is the Eleven-faced Kannon.
The large precincts surrounded by nature in the mountains are dotted with the main hall, a three-storied pagoda, a yokan (sweet bean jelly) shop, and a vegetarian restaurant.
During the Sengoku period, it was damaged by war during the Battle of Amago-Mori, but was revived during the Edo period.
Locally, it is still admired by many people as a temple for stamping cards and warding off evil spirits.
The only three-storied pagoda in San’in, built in the late Edo period, can be viewed.
You can get a panoramic view of the farming villages and townscape of the Yasugi district.
The seasonal scenery is very attractive, and many people visit it regularly.
