Visited by many praying for childbirth, easy childbirth and senility prevention as Vaisravana's sacred place, it was known as a training hall for purgation in literature from the Kamakura period (1185-1333) which says ""Any criminals can be forgiven for their sins if they run into the precincts of Kouyaji Temple."", it is counted as one of the Kyushu 88 temples and 108 sacred sites.

          Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu's Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
