"A Buddhist temple located in Goshiki-cho, Sumoto City, Hyogo Prefecture. Dedicated to Fukuroju, one of the Seven Gods of Fortune, the temple is part of the Awaji Seven Gods of Fortune Pilgrimage. The temple was founded as a standard seven structure compound in the year 737 by Gyoki to enshrine an eleven faced statue of Avalokitesvara, the temple's principal object of worship. The temple is also known for its summer festival, the night of which a portable shrine called ""Danjiri"" is carried around the grounds. Carrying two riders and weaving freely left and right, this folk entertainment called Tsukaidanjiri requires a variety of skills to be displayed and has been designated a Folk Cultural Property by the city."

Hyogo Main Areas
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.
