Nr. 20 - 霊鷲山 Ryojuzan 宝珠院 Hoju-In 鶴林寺 Kakurin-Ji
"Crane Forest Temple"
徳島県勝浦郡勝浦町生名鷲ヶ尾14 / Washigao-14 Ikuna, Katsuura-chō, Katsuura-gun, Tokushima

- Chant of the temple
しげりつる鶴の林をしるべにて  
大師ぞいます地蔵帝釈



- quote
While Kōbō Daishi was training at this temple, a small statue of Jizō appeared at the base of an old cedar tree guarded by a pair of cranes.
To commemorate this, Kōbō Daishi founded the temple and enshrined the statue in a larger, three-foot, statue of Jizō.

The crane is considered a symbol of longevity and good fortune and its appearance is considered an auspicious sign. Emperor Kammu gave the temple the title of Imperial Office Temple (Chokugansho).

This temple is unique in Tokushima Prefecture in having escaped the ravages of fire over the years. The temple is located on a mountain at 550 meters (1,800 feet) and is one of the pilgrimage's six major Nansho,, difficult access temples.

Starr notes that the statue next to the honzon is that of Minamoto Yoritomo on a horse.
