Sugazan Enmyoji Temple須賀山圓明寺
Sugazan Enmyoji located in Waki Town, Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture is a temple of the Shingon sect Chizan school and the 53rd temple of the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage. It is said that Gyoki carved the principal image of Amida Nyorai and the two side statues establishing the temple in 749, and Kobo daishi restored it later. The treasures of the temple are the oldest copper amulet in Shikoku’s sacred pilgrimage sites, which Dr. Starr, an American, found on a Shikoku pilgrimage. A Christian stone monument on the left of Daishi hall and a dragon-shaped carving on an upper-left lintel in the main hall made by Jingoro Hidari are particular must-sees.

Ehime Main Areas
Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country’s oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
