    Fukui Oi-gun Takahamacho Magoji 3-1

    ここは正式には本光山馬居寺。聖徳太子が開基と云う仏教文化初期の古寺中の古寺です。馬頭観音がおられる寺と云う意味で馬居寺と呼ばれるようになったらしい。取り分け、観音堂横の300体前後の石仏は鎌倉時代からのものであり、この寺院の縁起の深さが窺い知れる。

Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
