- quote
Ten Nights Bridge/Temple of Eternal Virtue

Eitokuji is located between Bangai Temple 7 and Temple 44. While the temple's name is officially Eitokuji, the name used by everyone is Tōyogabashi (Ten Nights Bridge) because of the legend associated with the bridge itself.

Legend has it that while in the area during the coldest part of winter, Kōbō Daishi went from house to house knocking on doors and asking for shelter. However, he was refused everywhere and ended up having to sleep under the bridge. He composed the following verse: "They will not help a traveler in trouble - This one night seems like ten."

The temple was founded by Kōbō Daishi and a reclining image of him is enshrined under the bridge. Since the time it was constructed, the temple has been destroyed numerous times from flooding. Now it is made of concrete and Kōbō Daishi lies under thick futons. Both the Daishi and the temple belong to the nearby Eitokuji.

The statue of the reclining Daishi is popularly called Nojuku Daishi.
