Kazanin Temple (Tokozan Bodaiji)花山院菩提寺


"A Buddhist temple located a 20-minute drive from the Kobe-Sanda interchange on the Chugoku Expressway. The temple's principal object of worship is a statue of Bhaisajyaguru. The temple has two main temple buildings, the Kazan Hou-ou-den, which enshrines a statue of Emperor Kazan; and the Yakushido, which enshrines the principal object of worship. The shrine is counted as part of the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage and the Saigoku Yakushi 49 Sacred Sites pilgrimage. In addition, the temple has seven ""Jizo Statues of Happiness,"" each of which is said to provide a different benefit to those who pray to it, giving visitors the chance to choose the statue appropriate to their needs. The temple promotes Buddhism through sutra copying events held on the first Saturday of every month as well as through appearances on the local Honey FM radio station."

          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture’s main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country’s most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
