Jodoji Temple浄土寺


A Mt. Koya Shingon Buddhist temple founded by the Buddhist monk Chogen in the distant Kamakura period located 15 minutes drive from the Miki-Ono interchange on the San'yo Expressway. This ancient temple owns many cultural properties and the Jododo hall and the standing statue of Amitabha it enshrines are designated National Treasures. The temple's grounds have an unusual layout, with a Hachiman Shinto shrine in the center and the Jododo and Yakushido halls facing each other beyond a pond in front of the shrine. A trail leading up the mountain behind the temple has been planted with some 10 thousand colorful hydrangea plants spanning 10 varieties. There's also a forest path which links up to the Shikoku 88 Pilgrimage.

          Hyogo 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.
