Daizoji Temple

Daizoji Temple

Daizoji Temple was founded in the name of Heian period shogun Sakanoue no Tamuramaro (758 ~ 811) at the foot of Bentenyama and features a kannon statue crafted by famed Buddhist priest Gyoki. The 1000-armed wooden ‘Senju Kannon’ is about 4 m tall and made from a single piece of Japanese nutmeg (torreya nucifera). The 9th century Jokan-style statue from the early Heian period is a nationally designated important cultural property. It is the first stop on the Shindatsu 33 Kannon Pilgrimage. The temple is also a popular destination in spring for the 300-year-old ‘shidare-zakura’ and ‘chigo-zakura’ cherry blossoms.
