Temple 26: Kongouchouji

Kongouchouji is the temple where Kukai was said to have stayed while he would meditate in the caves by the shore. There are several legends for Kongouchouji including thwarted devils who lived in camphor trees.

This temple is one where people come to pray for peace for the nation, and peace for the world. There is also a bulbous tree, of what kind I cannot say, where pilgrims come for healing from cancer.




I love this last photo. Our wonderful guide was always so cheerful and kind.
