Temple 22 -Byoudouji

“Byoudouji” means “Temple of Equality” and this fairness is in regards to the powers of healing through Yakushi Nyorai (Medicine Buddha), who heals all indiscriminately and with fairness and even-handedness to all. On the day we visited, we were permitted an extremely rare opportunity to see the deity inside, and even allowed to take a few pictures. That was unbelievably cool.

There is water that springs forth here that is said to grant healing to those with eye disease.
