Why Myotsuji Temple is special ?

Myotsuji is said to have been built by Tamuramaro Sakanoue in Daidou Year 1 (806 AD). The main temple building, which was rebuilt in the Kamakura Era, and the 22m three-storied pagoda are both national treasures. Many visitors are filled with awe upon seeing its solemn figure, which has survived for so many long ages.

Four wooden statues - the seated Yakushinyorai (Buddha who can cure all ills), the standing Jinja Daishou (a guardian deity) the standing Gouzanzemyou'ou (conqueror of the three worlds), and the standing Fudoumyou'ou (The Immovable) - have been preserved since the late Heian Era, and are now important national treasures.
