Chizenji Temple智禅寺

Temple

One of the stops on the Awajishima Seven Lucky Gods pilgrimage, this historic temple is 20 minutes by car from the Kobe-Awaji-Naruto Highway's Tsu Interchange. Awaji Island's Seven Lucky Gods pilgrimage visits seven temples around the island, including Chizenji Temple. It is said that everyone who completes it will be blessed with good luck and happiness. The temple enshrines Benzaiten, one of the lucky gods. Benefits of worshipping there are thought to include academic success, artistic flourishing, prosperity, and good luck in love and finances. Originally founded as a Buddhist training center, the main hall houses Dainichi-Nyorai, the principal object of worship. The temple also safeguards a priceless copy of Great Perfection of Wisdom Sutra dating from 1351.

          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.
