Temple 29: Kokubunji

There are four “Kokubunji” temples on the pilgrimage, one for each prefecture. So these are kind of “State Temples”. The deity of this temple is Kanzeon Bodhisattva, who is dedicated to hearing all the sounds and lamentations of the world, and equally committed to dispelling evil and despair wherever it can be found.

The walk up to the temple is very lovely, and the trees and lush greenery of the area adds to the whole experience of traveling and approaching this quiet and beautiful scene.
