This Buddhist temple is located in Kashukajiya, Minami Awaji City. Its history stretches back over 1,200 years when it was built as lodging for the priests who looked after the tomb of Emperor Junnin. One of Awaji Island's Sacred Sites of the Seven Lucky Gods, it enshrines an image of the deity Ebisu. Tradition says that touching a part of the statue's body will heal ailments in the corresponding part of the believer. Other benefits of worshiping there are said to be safety at sea and prosperity in fishing, business, and the nightlife industry.
