Onsenji Temple (温泉寺)
"This temple is located in the area right after getting off at Onsenji Chukan Station on the Kinosaki Ropeway. It is said that the priest Dochi, who opened Kinosaki Onsen with a prayer opened the temple. Emperor Shomu called the temple ""Kinosaki Onsen no Shugoji (guardian temple of Kinosaki Onsen)"", and it has protected Kinosaki Onsen and its bathers for approximately 1,300 years. The Standing Eleven-headed Kannon statue that Dochi received when it was opened is the principal Buddhist image of the temple and a nationally-designated Important Cultural Property. Normally it is shown every 33 years, it is displayed to the public at the event called Kaisanki, where prayers are said every April 24 so that the hot springs continue to spring up."
