Fudoin Iwayado Temple

"Fudoin Iwayado Temple is located around 10 minutes' drive from Wakasa Station on the Wakasa Railway Line, or around one hour's drive from the Yamazaki Interchange of the Chugoku Expressway. Built in the Butai-zukuri style inside a natural cave, the temple ranks among the three largest Nageiredo hall in Japan. Hondo (Main Hall) was originally constructed in 806, and subsequently rebuilt during the Muromachi period (1336-1573). The larger temple of which it was part was burned down during an invasion of the region by Toyotomi Hideyoshi in the 16th century, leaving only Fudoin Iwayado building, which has been designated as a National Important Cultural Property. The main object of veneration in the temple-a statue of Fudomyo (one of the Five Wisdom Kings)-was carved by Kobo Daishi at the age of 33, and is one of the ""Three Great Statues of Fudomyo"" in Japan; the general public are allowed to view the statue twice a year, during the Goma Hoyo ceremonies in March and July."
