Domyo-ji Temple (道明寺)
This is a convent of the ancient Shingon sect of Buddhism located on the western side of Domyoji Tenmangu Shrine, approximately a seven-minute walk from Domyoji Temple Station. The Temple is dedicated to the 11-headed Kanzeon Bodhisattva, a national treasure, that lord Fujiwara Michizane carved himself. The history of the temple is also associated with Michizane's aunt who was also a member of the nunnery. In the age of civil wars in the medieval period the temple burned down. However, with the support of Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and the Tokugawa family, the temple was able to be rebuilt and became a temple authorized by the shogunate. The national treasure and principal object of prayer is on public display on the 18thand the 25thof every month. This temple is also the birth place of Kansai style sakura mochi sweet rice cakes and Domyoji Hoshii, dried boiled rice used to make Japanese confectionery.
