Iwaya Cave (岩屋山石窟)

Cave

Iwaya Cave in Shukunegi, Sado City is a sea cave. Buddha statues called magaibutsu are carved into the rock face in the cave, and some of the works are believed to have been done by Kobo Daishi. 88 Buddha statues imitating the 88 Shikoku holy places and a Kannon temple has also been built. Some worshippers carry out nemari henro (sitting pilgrimage) chanting Buddhist prayers while secluding themselves in the cave, so it is respected as a holy place.
