Nr. 68 - 七宝山 Shippozan 神恵院 Jinnei-In
香川県観音寺市八幡町1-2-7 / 1 Chome-2-7 Yahatachō, Kanonji-shi, Kagawa

- quote
On March 21, 703, Nisshō, a monk in the Yogacara School, had a vision here. Seven colorful clouds arose on the western horizon and hovered over the mountain of this temple (Mt. Kotohiki). Suddenly a ship floated on the sea and the god Hachiman appeared to Nissh( playing a Koto and said, I am the god Hachiman himself, and I will stay here to protect the Buddha's Dharma and the ruler's law.

Nisshō dedicated the ship and its Koto to the temple. Later, Kōbō Daishi painted the Kotobiki (harp playing) Hachiman in the form of Amida Butsu and dedicated that to the temple as well. The picture of Amida is now a National Treasure. Kōbō Daishi is also attributed with having carved the honzon.

Legend states that Gyōgi Bosatsu also stayed at this temple for a short period.

Be sure to look down on Ariake beach from the temple and see the coin-shaped circle made of sand and originally built in 1633 in imitation of a coin of the Kanei period.

** Both this temple and Temple 69 are in the same compound and the nōkyōsho for both is at the same window.
