Goza Tsumekiri Fudoson

Fudo-do Hall is associated with Kobo Daishi.

During the Enryaku era, Kobo Daishi returned from Tang (China) and traveled all over the country to find a place with a good environment to establish a sacred place for the propagation of Shingon Esoteric Buddhism. It is said that after a 100-day Goma memorial service on Mt. Konpira, a statue of Fudo Myoo was carved into a natural stone protruding from the ground with his own nails.
The villagers believe in this as Tsumekiri Fudo, and have built a hall to make it a sacred place, making it an absolutely secluded Buddha.
The precincts are lush with greenery and have a tranquil atmosphere, and in addition to Fudo-do, there are Daishi-do, which enshrines the founder Kobo Daishi, Yakushi-do, and Koyasu Jizo.
