A temple representing Onomichi with many important cultural properties
Saikoku-ji Temple, which is said to have been founded by Gyoki Bosatsu, is located halfway up Mt. Atago, one of the three mountains of Onomichi. Go through the Deva Gate, famous for its large straw sandals with a length of about 2 m, and climb the 108-step stone steps to the main hall, which is a national important cultural property, and when you climb the stone steps further, a vermilion three-storied pagoda (National Important Cultural Property) was built from Suisho no Ma. It’s there. This tower is said to have been donated by Ashikaga’s sixth shogun, Yoshinori.
It is crowded with many people during the season that heralds the arrival of the new year, such as “Shibato Goma” and “Setsubun Kai.”
Tozan is called Tojiin Saigo-ji Temple on Mt. Chigetsuyama, and the sect is the Jishu sect founded by Ippen Shonin, the founder of the temple, the sixth generation of Yugyo, Toaichi Shonin, and the principal image is Amida Nyorai, who was the eminent Buddha of Takauji ASHIKAGA. The main hall and daimon are nationally designated important cultural properties. It was built in 1353 by Ashikaga Takauji, receiving donations of the Ingo, Nenjitsu, and Buddha’s territory and 20,000 kan. The main hall best represents the architectural style of the Northern and Southern Courts, and is valuable as the remains of the oldest main hall of the Jishu sect. Daimon was erected in 1395 by the wife of the lord of Bingo Aikata Castle, in Oei 2 (1395), and the wife became a nun who was a believer in the sixth generation of Yugyo Toaichin Shonin, and it is said that she died in this area.
One of the most ancient temples in the Chugoku region, said to have been founded by Prince Shotoku
Jodoji is said to have been founded by Prince Shotoku in the distant past in Asuka, and is one of the most ancient temples in the Chugoku region.
With the prosperity of the port as a temple where Onomichi’s villagers developed as a key to the Seto Inland Sea, it is supported by the townspeople of each era, and it has been around 700 years since the end of the Kamakura period.
The sun setting to the west of the precincts shines as if reminiscent of the world of the Pure Land, and the main hall, Amida hall, and Tahoto pagoda illuminated by the light of the sunrise are solemn words.
Walking around the city (Onomichi Hondori Shopping Street, Chamber of Commerce Memorial Hall, etc.)
(Shortcut by bus from Jodoji-shita to Onomichi Ekimae 7 minutes)
A bus with tourist information that circulates around the city (Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays only). If you get tired of walking, I also recommend taking a bus. (There are regular route buses on weekdays as well.)
