Iyadaniji Temple (弥谷寺)

A flight of 540 steps lead to the mountain top main temple of Iyadaniji Temple. It's one of the top three sacred spots in Japan according to some rankings and the 71st temple on 88 sacred places on the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Known for its difficult access, worshiping there is thought to help ward off illness. These days a shuttle bus is available for those who don't want to make the climb.

四国88箇所・71番礼所です。
道の駅に車を停車して、山をひたすら登って行きます。
山全体が寺の境内になっています。
登るのがしんどかったので、境内の中のバスを利用しました(有料です)。
ちょうど紅葉の時期でもあり、しんどいお寺ですが、美しいお寺でもありました。

          Japan's smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone's throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa's prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country's best gardens.
