Jofukuji Temple (椿堂 常福寺)
"A Shingon Buddhist temple located east along National Route 192 traveling from the Mishima-Kawanoe Interchange. Known as the Tsubakido (the ""Camelia Hall""), the temple is the 14th temple on the Shikoku 20 Bekkaku Temple Pilgrimage. According to legend, when the great monk Kobo Daishi was visiting the area, he heard a terrible fever was epidemic, and so he took his cane and sealed the evil spirits behind the illness in the ground. A camellia tree grew from the cane, thus giving rise to the temple's nickname, and even today visitors will find a huge camellia growing on the grounds. A statue of Kobo Daishi is located at the foot of the tree, and it is said that touching the statue with your right hand while touching a place on your body where you are experiencing pain with your left and praying will cause your pain to go away."
