Maniji Temple (喜見山 摩尼寺)

This Buddhist temple is one of the 37 famous and ancient temples spanning the five prefectures of the Chugoku region on the Chugoku Kannon Pilgrimage. Situated at the foot of a mountain at the far end of a forest road, the temple's principal objects of worship are statues depicting a Sakra and a thousand armed Kannon. The ancient temple is connected to the legend of the Koyama Choja and was founded around 834. Mt. Mani, where the temple is located, has been believed to be a gathering spot for the souls of the deceased since the ancient times, and even today there is a deep-rooted mountain faith which worships the mountain, which legend has it is where spirits have been called back from the beyond. The temple is a 20-minute drive from Tottori Station. Note that visiting the temple requires one to climb some 300 steep steps.
